Chalky Roads

Research has shown us that there are six early literacy skills that are essential for young children to become familiar with in order to be successful readers.

These skills include vocabulary, print motivation, print awareness, letter knowledge, narrative skills, and phonological awareness. This activity targeted two of these concepts.

The first, is that of letter knowledge. Letter knowledge reflects an awareness that letters are different from each other.

The second, is that of phonological awareness. Phonological awareness means that your little one understands that letters make sounds. For this activity, we created roads out of yellow and black chalk.

Using cars and a little imagination, we placed our cars onto our chalky roads! These roads were shaped like the letter C. As they placed their cars onto their letter roads, they were encouraged to say, “C is for car!”
