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

Lots of kids are fascinated by space, and the idea of walking on the moon. You could take a chat about space travel even further, and watch some YouTube videos together, or interviews with astronaut Tim Peake. A question like ‘What would you take into space?’ could inspire some fun replies! And you could help your child to write down five items they would take into space with them.

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.

Put some music on, dance around, and get your child to count out different actions with you – like 10 hops or 16 jumps – in time to the music. It’s a good way to use up some excess energy too!
