It’s easy to make every day a Read, Write, Count day

Whether you’re walking to school together, or doing the weekly shop – there are loads of ways you can squeeze in a wee bit of reading, writing and counting. Take a look at the video  for some ideas.

Handy tips

Kids love to talk about their favourite characters from their tv shows or cartoons they like. You could get them to write about them, too. Ask your child to say why they like that character? Are they funny, clever, do they have special powers?

Seasonal: Make a gift list for Christmas/the holidays – what’s on your list? What do you need to get for your friends and family?

Next time you’re in a shop, get your child to look for prices and check how much different things cost. You could turn it into a bit of a treasure hunt, and look for items that cost more than and less than £1. Or look for any item that costs £2 exactly. If something is on offer – 2 for £1, say – you could help your child work out what each individual item costs.
