It’s that time of year again: time for road trips and family car rides! If you have a long ride in your near future with young children, here is a fun activity for you to do: Read and Write on the Road. Click the link and it will take you to a fantastic pack of cards you can print for free!
In this pack, creator Erin Ring gives parents a selection of ideas to help make the car ride seem a little shorter with games. It requires little more than a printer (to make the cards) and a bag of small goodies: a variety of books, a notepad, pencil, clipboard (or lapboard), and crayons.
Skills in the pack include letter and sound recognition, storytelling and retelling skills, speaking, categorizing, drawing conclusions, and more. This is great for children preschool through third grade.
