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

Most kids love popping bubble wrap – and if you have lying around at home, why not have a bubble wrap race? Who can pop the most in a minute? You can count the burst bubbles together to find out.

If you don’t have stairs in your home, you could count footsteps on the way to bed instead. You could try guessing how many steps before they reach their bedroom door? How many steps from the door to their bed? Then count them out to get the number.

Choose a letter of the alphabet, then ask your child to write down a food, an animal, a name, and a place that begins with this letter.
