Sand: Reading and Writing

If you want to add some fun to reading and writing words (in English or another language), go to the park.

1. Go to a big sand box with your kids (a couple days after rain works best)
2. Find some long, pointy sticks (for pencils)
3. Have them write words and you write words for them to read (or translate)
4. Have fun!

We did our reading and writing activities at the park today. A wrote her name with a stick and I wrote the short a words we have been working on reading (hat, cash, etc.). It was a lot of fun!

This could be used for little ones learning to read and write. For foreign language, you could have them translate for you or dictate sentences and they write it down. Just wanted to share and hope someone can try it out!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! It's been fun to come over here and get some fresh ideas from both you and your mother. I really like this idea for my little ones!
