Use vacation travel time to bond, grow in literacy
If you haven’t enjoyed a vacation yet, I hope you get to take one. There are numerous reasons to do so, but sometimes when children travel with you, you rely heavily on electronic games, which are certainly not all bad, but a vacation needs to include human interaction that often busy lives don’t allow.
So, hopefully you make sure there is time for not just doing things together, but using travel time to bond and grow in literacy. Reading the same book, word games, map bingo, road scavenger hunts, etc. are fun and challenging. Road signs alone make great story starters. Take turns finding an unusual sign and create a story about it. Imagination is a large part of literacy.
Then we come home, so what can we do to help our own literacy remain strong both secularly and spiritually and encourage the literacy of others? Some things we can do are to volunteer to be a school aide for those with reading disabilities. We can participate in and promote literacy classes, learning centers, adult education programs. There is a wealth of opportunities available.
