Add to your cart....

When you go shopping be sure to make a list of all the things you will be throwing in your cart to tote home for consumption. Have your kids help you add to your list as you record the words neatly on a pad. Read the entire list over together before you strike out on your grocery adventure.
While in the cart you can give your child a pen or pencil and have them cross the grocery item off your list when you drop it in your cart. Your child can then read the next item out loud that you need to purchase. Make it a fun search and plunk game. Add to your cart.....
When you get home and are unloading and putting away your items have your child copy the words from the old list onto a new list or have them put a check mark beside the products that you shelved or put into your cupboard for fridge. This shopping game will enhance sight words and writing skills. Make it fun. Make it simple. When you are all finished sit down together and scoff one of the special items together that was on your list. Smile and read on.
