Outdoor Classroom Day – Wednesday Writing

I love to take my literacy lessons outdoors, there is so much you can do!  From creating sound maps.  This is when the children sit and listen and creatively construct a map showing the sounds they hear and from where they came. 

I have also used the outdoors to develop children’s use of adjectives.  A piece of chalk and let them go wild writing adjectives next to or on corresponding objects.  Then heading indoors and completing a piece of descriptive writing.  This really helped enrich the writing. 

You can also take instruction writing outside.  We built a fire and asked the children to write the instructions on how to do this.  Of course, the s’mores they enjoyed also helped motivate them!
