More Practical Applications

I took to trusty pinterest to find some more ideas about practical ways to teach literacy skill outdoors. I found another blog that outlines a few ideas that I found interesting.

ABC Eye Spy

Have students look for letters of the alphabet in signs, etc. when going on a walk (challenge them to find all the letter of the alphabet) or say a specific letter or sound and have them find an object that begins with that, or possibly ends with it to make it more challenging. This could also be done with blended letters, such as ‘sh’ or ‘th.’

ABC Nature Shapes

Have students look for letters that occur in different nature objects, such as the ‘o’ in the centre of a flower or the ‘u’ in a petal.
