Exercise the Alphabet Outside
In kindergarten, children are expected to become masters of the alphabet. By the end of kindergarten, children should be able to recite the alphabet, identify individual letters and associate most of the letters with their corresponding sounds.
If your child is a mover and a shaker, there's no better way to practice alphabet skills than to get her outside, and exercise the alphabet! Here's how to help your child make letter-sound associations, while also getting some healthful exercise.
What You Need:
- Beach ball
- Sidewalk chalk (Note: If you prefer to complete these exercises on the lawn, you can use pieces of paper or foam, labeled with a letter of the alphabet, one per letter)
- Hula hoop
- A partner
