Hey Mom and Dad are you planning on taking a trip to the beach with your kids soon? Why are you packing the bags? A great activity to boost a variety of language skills during the summer would be to “pack that bag” together. You can have your kids make a list of things they think they would need for the beach. They can sequence through all the events from getting to the beach to getting home, and what objects and actions they would have to have and do. Additionally you can have them locate the necessary objects within your house as a way to categorize by location. Your kids will be learning and problem -solving, you will have less to do, and it might make the entire trip more memorable for all.
