I recently had a chance to check out the Summer Bridge Activities workbooks. I recommend checking these books out if you’re interested in easy summer learning. I’m also providing this Outdoor Alphabet Scavenger Hunt Printable to easily go on your own adventure with your kids.
I enjoy these books for our kids because they encourage ways to avoid summer learning loss at any grade level. Even as we begin our homeschooling in the fall, I don’t want my daughter to lose what she’s learned from her preschool. I also find these workbooks as a great way for my three-year-old to learn too.
The kids and I did an outdoor alphabet scavenger hunt that was mentioned in the Pre-K workbooks. A great way to get the kids outside while learning how to sound things out. They even learn a little bit of science by explaining what different plants are.
This outdoor activity helps kids look at the world around them. Finding objects that begin with each letter of the alphabet and exercising visual learning.
My daughter looks at an object and figures out what letter it begins with. She sounds out each word to ensure that the object begins with the correct letter.
Outdoor Alphabet Scavenger Hunt Printable
Click here to print out this Outdoor Alphabet Scavenger Hunt Printable. Print it out on basic printer paper or cardstock. I’ve included the alphabet and lines behind each letter to fill in the blanks.
Everything else is up to you and your child’s imagination. Be creative in ways that you find items for each letter of the alphabet. Take the time to teach your kids about different leaves or plants.
We have a homestead garden in our backyard. This activity was perfect in helping teach my kids what is planted there. We have a variety of trees too. It was fun to relate the scavenger hunt to sounding out words and learning more about the world around us.
Have fun with your summer learning projects. Tell me in the comments what you are doing to prevent summer learning loss with your family. You never know what creative ideas you might find from others.
