Fabric Letters - All About Learning pattern and tutorial

Re-post from last year but slightly different.
** Scroll down to see a way to receive one of two sets (previously used by my preschoolers)

I have been following All About Learning for a while now. 
By clicking on this link http://allaboutlearningpress.net and purchasing from the All About Learning store, I will be compensated monetarily. 
One of the very first items I noticed on their site was the Make Your Own Fabric Alphabet.  This is a free tutorial with patterns to make your own fabric letters.  Of course I had to make them for my preschool and my children love using them to help learn letter formation and spelling out basic CVC words that we are learning.  
These letters can be made easily and the best part, I was able to use up some of my scrap material.  I made 5-6 of each letter, that way all my preschool children can use them at once.  

Click on the above picture to be taking to the All About Learning website to get your own pattern and to see the tutorial. 

Here is a picture of my fabric letters I made from this pattern:
 

I have been cleaning out my preschool items, since I am no longer in that age group.  I have 2 sets of these fabric letters wanting to find a nice home.  (Not all the letters will be in the fabric shown) All still look nice and none have been in mouths. I do live in a house with a cat... 
If you would like a set I have two up for grabs.  
Just comment below with your favorite Letter and why?

A Fun Series for History For Your Children

I have a daughter who loves to read and lately has been interested in History.  This could be because we have received Carole P. Roman's If You Where Me and Lived in...The Middle Ages. We received this book free from Cheshire Inc. for our honest review.

Carole P. Roman has a whole series of If You Were Me and Lived In..... which you can find on Amazon here at Ms Roman's author page. (I will NOT be compensated for any sales you may make from this link.)

I had been looking for fun, historical books for my children to read, since I really want them to understand and learn History in a fun way this year. They are younger and History text books seem to be so Borrrrring even for me.  Let us make History fun as it should be.
This story follows a girl from the #MiddleAges, and how she and her family lived day to day life. The pictures are drawn like a cartoon, but are nicely done, faded colors.
My daughter loved reading about the clothing the family wears.
I like this book because though it tells a story from a land owner daughter view point, there is also detail of how peasants and upper nobles also lived.

You will also find a glossary of terms along with a page of pictures and descriptions of famous people of that time and place. These are great jumping off point to learn more about this time period.
This is a great book to give the general overview of that time period. If my children want to learn more in depth then we can then advance to more in depth history. I would recommend this to 6-9 year old children. My eight year old really enjoyed the story and learning what it would be like to be a child then. She is asking me for some more in this series.

You can find this book in printed or Kindle form on Amazon here.
