Reading Tips

I bought window cling words from the Dollar Tree - The "colors" words... There were 10 paint splashes with colors and the words... and 10 tubes of paint with colors and the words.

I took the window clings and put one set on the car window where Kira sits and the other set on the car window where Marisa sits.

Now when we're in the car, the girls can practice reading the "colors" and learn how each color is spelled. They think it's super cool and I get to work in a school lesson without much effort.

Both my girls sit on the driver side, so the cling stickers don't interfere with the driver's ability to see out the window. They like this so much that I think I may expand the project to include some other words, too. Right now we'll focus on the colors... then move on to something a bit more complicated.

One important part of educating your children is to think outside the box. Do something unexpected... to keep them interested in learning and having fun with the process.
