Mapping Out Our Neighborhood
Time to stand up and write! We took turns writing and drawing on a large piece of bulletin board paper, taped to the wall. Benefits--promoting an extended wrist while writing, challenging balance and varying the head position while visually monitoring the task.
We wrote high on the paper then crouched down low to draw and write along the bottom edge. We sketched our houses, grocery stores and movie theatres and decided to create roads to connect them all.
I think this elementary-age student was pretty excited about the prospect of driving around town! We live in a fun town, whichever way you choose to spell it!
