momstown loves to incorporate literacy into as many activities as we can – and holidays are no different! We’ve got 10 different ways to incorporate literacy this Christmas season.
1. Find a new favourite reading spot. Whether you’ve got holiday books to open each day, or just placing favourite reads by the tree, it’s a great way to encourage your children to pick up a book.
4. Build an advent calendar using the ABC’s. Design activities over the holiday break with a letter of the day theme! T for tobogganing, M for movie day, S for snowball fight… get your kids to contribute the ideas and practice their letter sound association.
5. Make writing letters to Santa or writing thank you notes after Christmas a family affair! Get out the coloured paper, fun holiday pencils, and practice those writing skills! Even the littlest kids can help sign their name to a card or colour a picture as a thank-you.
