Everyday Literacy 2

Here are a few more ways in which we integrate literacy into our everyday life around this reading mama’s house.

Literacy Toys-Many of these were bought as birthday or Christmas presents and are rotated out weekly to keep them “fresh”.

Letter blocks: I got at Target in the $1 section.

Puzzles: I bought these particular foam ABC puzzles at the $1 store several years ago and used them in my K classroom (now they have bite marks on them, brought to you by NJoy!).  We have other ABC puzzles, too, including Melissa & Doug’s Alphabet Train puzzle that was purchased at Michael’s Craft Store with a 60% off coupon!  Loved that deal!!

Foam letters for bathtub: From Target in the bathtub/baby section.  I bought two sets to make it easier to spell words.  They come with numbers as well.

VSmile: It honestly doesn’t even compare to the updated, more elaborate gaming systems out there.  But don’t tell my boys that.  They both LOVE it!  You can find a system and games at almost any consignment sale.

Leapfrog’s Tag & Tag Jr.: When Papa Bill asked what to get his boys for Christmas, I knew just what to tell him.  Both boys enjoy their Tags.  ALuv will sometimes swipe NJoy’s and play with it, too!

Leapfrog’s Little Touch LeapPad: Even though this one is designed for infants-36 months, ALuv still plays with it upon rotation.  We have about 8 of the little books that go with it and I rotate these out as well.

And of course…Books, books, books.  You can never have enough books, right?  I am picky about my books and I don’t like to pay too much for them, but we enjoy our books around here!
