How on earth do cookie sheets and alphabet magnets have anything to do with each other? Well, they are the perfect combo for a car trip, whether it’s running errands around town or a long trip out of town. Here’s a few ideas but of course let your child be creative too. Have a few extra sets of magnets available too if you’re child wants to work on spelling.
Depending on your child, you can start out with simpler ideas focusing on just the letters and progress to more difficult ideas like writing sight words or environmental print. This idea is sorting letters that use only straight lines and letters that use a curved line.
When your child has a good grasp of letter identification, have them sort consonants and vowels.
You can also have them sort out the letters in their name or anyone else’s for that matter.
When your child is ready for a challenge, have them sort out the letters that make more than one sound.
Kids also love to copy environmental print.
