Create Your Driveway Letter Grid

Grab your sidewalk chalk and find a large area of concrete.

Write out the alphabet in a large grid. You’ll want it big enough so that your child can stand on an individual letter, but not so big that they can’t easily move from one letter to another.

Tip: Enlist your kids to help create the grid, no need to write it all yourself!

Now that your letter grid is ready, you’re ready to practice spelling outside!

Practice Spelling Outside

To play, you  will want to call out one of your child’s spelling words and have them spell the words by jumping to each letter spelling aloud as they go.

If there are 2 letters in a row (i.e. tt or ee), just jump twice on that letter.

Sometimes they may have to do some creative leaping if the letters are too far apart!

More more fun, add additional movements. Hop, skip, run, tiptoe, march, or take giant steps. Move a different way for each spelling word.

It’s so easy to have fun with a driveway letter grid!
