Summer is here so it’s time to take the learning outside into the warm sunshine. In this installment of my 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet Series I am sharing an activity that combines a water gun with some letter learning. I call this activity water gun letter squirt.
We’ve owned our Super Soakers for about a year now. And with the weather heating up, I thought it was time to dig them out of the garage again for a letter learning exercise.
So I wrote some letters on our backyard fence using sidewalk chalk.
Then I armed with my son with a Super Soaker.
I named a letter, and then let him take aim at it with his water gun.
Then repeat until your child has practiced all the letters on your list.
