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 is 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 for great practice on number recognition!
My two little loves…bed head and all!
And, of course, we had to stop by the park for a little gross motor fun:
What simple and meaningful ways do you encourage letter, shape, and number recognition?
My son has loved this lately, too! I'll ask him to find a W if I know we're driving by Wal-Mart or the Waffle House. Or ask him to find a 3 when we're driving by a 35 mph sign. It's fun to watch him realize that numbers and letters are everywhere.
Hopefully we can start walking again with the cooler weather!
Yep, those pictures are great. :)
All thanks to you, Rachel!!!
Wow, what cool shots! I love the one where he is pointing at the numbers.
We are doing a letter of the week "curriculum" and when we go for a walk we always do a scavenger hunt looking for the letter on license plates.
I know this is totally unrelated, but we have the same double buggy. lol. Twin Aria Plus right? Great pram! :-) Loving your blog. Just came across it this week and I have a 3yr old (same name as your biggest boy), 2 yr old and a 5 mth old. Loving the inspiration from this blog.
