Teaching Tuesday--driving edition

Where's the dead space in your day?  What about in the car?
As you're driving to and fro, picking up groceries, dropping kids off at swim lessons, what are you teaching your children in that space of time?
These are just a few ideas of what you can be reviewing in that dead time?

  • Colors: stop lights, signs, objects in the car
  • Numbers: signs, counting objects on the road
  • Letters: playing the alphabet game, singing the ABCs
  • Presidents: reciting presidents in order
  • Scripture: recite them with hand motions (stop lights only please)
  • Planets: order from the sun
  • Days of the Week
  • Learning First and Last Name as well as Parent's Name, Address, and Phone Number
