Reading Activity Idea

In the car: Children like to look at license plates and find ones from other states. Play a game with your child and look for the most interesting license plates. Talk about what you like on each one- the color? the design? the letters and numbers? “What state are those people from?” If possible, show a map to your child. Explain that a map is a picture or diagram of what a place looks like. Make up a story about where the car is going or what people do in a different state.
