Okay, it is 8 pm and I am posting my quick tip Tuesday! Maybe I should just continue to call this Quick Tip Tuesday and actually post on Wednesday ha! It is funny how often I go not realizing what day it is until halfway through. I am tired haha.
Today’s tip is one I am so excited about sharing. I discovered this over a year ago. My son was 2, almost 3 and I wanted to start practicing words with him. He is already so interested in how words are spelled, but he has a tough time sitting still! It makes practicing a bit difficult. I gifted him with Shower crayons the Christmas before and while bathing him one night decided to write a few words on the wall. Before I knew it he was learning the words and we were adding more!! He was so excited to learn a new word each bath and I found that he was identifying them without error!
I posted a video to social media and friends were so impressed with how well he knew sight words. He eventually was spelling a few 10 letter words! This is something we have been able to keep up with and I am excited to share with my 1 year old in the next year or so.
Shower crayons are pretty cheap and lots of fun. Your kids will think it is fun to draw all over the bathroom walls and they wipe off pretty easily. I highly recommend this when you want to introduce sight words to your little one!
At just 3 years old my son was identifying every word you see here and spelling most of them!
