Hey, guess what? The sun came out today! Woohoo!
To celebrate, here’s a simple outdoor literacy project:
Letter rocks! We just stamped letters using permanent ink. The smooth stones definitely worked best.
So far, my boys have used the rocks to just make any words they could. (The 6 year old helped the 4 year old quite a bit with this.) Then they started to build words off of other words, Scrabble style. Then we tried to build as many words as we could in 2 minutes. The 4 year old loves lining them up in alphabetical order as fast as he can.
Pretty simple! I’m planning to leave them in our rock pile outside to use all summer. I think these would lend themselves to lots of other alphabet games. What do you think?
