National Literacy Day Activities




September 8th was National Literacy day, here are some ideas to keep your students engaged in literacy activities all month!



The first activity we found is called Making words. 

You take the foam/ magnetic letters and use the letters that are scrabbled to create multiple words. Make sure the children know to only use the letters given to them.

The Second Activity is called Stamp it out.
 
For this activity you will use stamps to spell out the written words, once it is stamped out the children can trace the letters on the next portion of the activity and the last step is to write it in their best hand writing.

The last Activity we would suggest for a full day of fun 
Simply having the children pick out a book at the library or bringing in their favorite book from home to read silently or to read to a book buddy.
