Early Literacy Tip—April 2017

Have Fun with April Showers

Make the most of rainy days by engaging with fun activities that also emphasize literacy and learning.

*Use a puddle to test which things (leaves, sticks, outdoor toys) sink or float.

*Color with sidewalk chalk on wet pavement. It’s a different, brighter color.

*Collect rainwater for your garden in a bowl or bucket, then measure.

*Don’t forget to jump and stomp in puddles!
