Below are some excellent ways to carschool on your short or long road trip:
- Audio Curriculum or Audio Books - There are loads of audio resources: Learning Wrap Ups Audio Math & more, Car Schooling, HomeFires.com Tips, Library Rentals or you can buy audio books most anywhere.. Purchase them in CD format or Ipod MP3 Download.
- Pre Printed Hand-Outs - These can be anything from: Math Printables, Alphabet Learning and Letter Recognition, Numbers and Shape learning, History/Geogrpahy Learning, Brief State Pages (for state traveling). (Landmarks, Populations, Odd Street Names or Signs, Mile Marker etc..)
- Road Games - Road games can be fun. Games like; License Plate Watching - (Identify states on the vehicle plates and keep track of how many states you have seen and how many from each state you have counted.), I SPY is a big hit..
- For Little Ones : COUNTING: If you know the border of a state is coming up, Or the location your heading to is nearing - Count beginning with 0 and see how many numbers you can count to until you arrive to your destination or the border. (This is also good with kids learning time, minute and seconds)
- Car Spelling - Spelling can be done on your traveling tip. For older kids, pick out street names, state, capitol or town names, objects or places to spell. For little ones go over site words and other words they may be familiar with. This would be a good time to recap your words.
- Music Audios or Singing - We all I am sure will agree we like music. Maybe not the same preference but music audios are also a great carschooler.
- Pre-Packed CarSchool Bag or Tote - PrePack your carschooling things ahead of time. Totes with coloring pencils, crayons, (Markers for Older Kids), pencils, sketching pads, writing notebooks, reading books (for the older kids), Etchasketch and other traveling games, CD player headsets (for those who don't enjoy listening to the kids audio schooling).
These are few things I have jotted down and I do have more and I am sure you have some. Feel free to share your tips..
