After our Chalking mad day I thought this neighbourhood chalk walk where you look for numbers and copy them. We got the idea from inspirational laboratories website.
I decided to take a chalkboard too but the 2 year old used that more and Dylan 4 years old enjoyed writing on the floor .
I loved this idea although we had to limit the amount outside the neighbours houses.
This helped developed confidence and encouraged him to see that 2 and 5 look similar as he mixes them. Plus 7 he seemed to write the wrong way around. Getting him to check on the source helped to reinforce this.
Maybe we will try it with letters next time or tracing shadows.
