The other week Little Button (year 1) came home all fired up from school, completely jelly-bean keen to practice her typing and google search skills on our Mac. We are indeed a family obsessed with tech and gadgets, so this in itself wouldn’t be surprising at all. *Thinks back to the time she decided to print a billion different LOL Surprise colouring pages out. By herself. While I was in the bathroom for 2 teeny seconds.
But it did get me thinking.
I’m not sure we show her enough of the written word, in practice, on a day to day basis at home. Digitally yes, but if I’m completely honest, handwritten, no.
So we’ve decided to have a go at using good old fashioned happy mail (or snail mail) as a way of additionally supporting her reading and writing development. Because how fun is it getting a little slice of happiness through the post every now and again. We can’t wait.
If you fancy joining in too, here are a few tips to get you started.
Let us know how you get on. I’ve just bought stamps today, so hopefully we will get our first happy mail sent out in the next few days.
