Learning Walk

*This was originally posted 2 years ago, when Big Brother was the same age as Little Brother is now! Little Brother and I have been enjoying our “learning walks” whenever Big Brother is at preschool. I’ve peppered in a few new photos as well!*

Sometimes the simplest things can be the most meaningful…

The weather has been much nicer lately, which means it is cool enough in the mornings to actually go for walks! I just started pointing out numbers and shapes on our walks and Big Brother, and now Little Brother, are hooked!

Making knowledge meaningful in real-life situations is really one of our biggest goals as parents. What better way to do this than while getting a little exercise for ourselves?!? I know I certainly need it! :)

Mailboxes make great practice for number recognition…

 Many shapes can be found by just looking around…


My two little loves…bed head and all!


And, of course, we had to stop by the park for a little gross motor fun:

(He is sooo little!)


The possibilities are endless with a little fresh air and sunshine!

What simple and meaningful ways do you encourage letter, shape, and number recognition?
