Literacy on the Go!
A fun way to continue learning while on the go.
Find it A-Z
Search for billboards, signs, license plates, etc., that contain the letter A.  Then the search is on for B, next C, and so forth, until you come to Z.  This can be a cooperative game, with everyone in the family searching for the next letter in the alphabet.  You can also play different versions of Find It, by seeing who can find the most out-of-state license plates, pick-up trucks, etc., in the next five miles.
Alfabetización sobre la marcha

Una forma divertida de seguir aprendiendo sobre la marcha.

Encuéntrelo A-Z
Busque vallas publicitarias, letreros, placas de matrícula, etc., que contengan la letra A. Luego, la búsqueda continúa para B, la siguiente C, y así sucesivamente, hasta llegar a Z. Este puede ser un juego cooperativo, con todos en el familia buscando la siguiente letra del alfabeto. También puede jugar diferentes versiones de Find It, viendo quién puede encontrar la mayor cantidad de placas, camionetas, etc. de otros estados en las próximas cinco millas.
Edible ABCs
Think of food words for each letter of the alphabet.  Take turns naming something delicious to eat for each letter this may take some creativity for letters X and Z (try X-ray fish and zucchini).
