Road Trip Learning
Many people will be embarking on road trips this Thanksgiving holiday to visit family and friends. You can use your road trip to add to your child's learning!
Add up the signs
Find a Word
Use a word from a road sign - such as Sacramento - how many words can they find?
Sacramento (rent, ram, meant, to, etc.)
Take a tally
Have your child practice tallying up the things they see. They could tally the # of trucks, stop signs, etc. Make it an extra challenge for your older kiddos by asking them additional questions - What percentage of those trucks were Fed Ex trucks?
ABC Find it
Have your child look for all of the letters in the alphabet on road signs or license plates.
What other ideas can you think of?
