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.

When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.

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.
