Literacy education, vacationing go together
Word play is fun at any age. I remember when my granddaughter was 5, and we drove by a warehouse. She asked, “Grandma, what do you wear at a warehouse?” One should never minimize the power of a word, for a word is the symbol of an idea, and ideas change things. Emerson said, “Cut a vital word, and it will bleed.” One of my personal beliefs is that people swear and use profanity because they don’t have enough words in their vocabulary. A vital word brings understanding and life to what you say. People listen when you have something to say. They learn to ignore words that don’t uplift.
Words and vacation go together. One way to help parents get ready for a vacation is to help a child plan a literate bag of vacation activities. When we helped our niece Caly plan an activity bag, she had already included crayons for her brother, pens and pencils for herself and of course plenty of paper. She also had chosen two coloring books, books to read and crossword puzzles to work. She asked for our suggestions.
We suggested adding a map and some scissors; her mother suggested she take her pen pals names and addresses and letter writing material. Another aunt suggested some dot-to-dots for her brother. I included some games.
