Super Literacy at the Supermarket

Following on from our Super Maths at the Supermarket post this post focuses on literacy learning at the supermarket.

So here are some of our teaching and learning experiences:

  • Writing; shopping lists give the opportunity to practice handwriting and spelling skills
  • Reading; there are lots of opportunities to read on a shopping trip – reading lists, packets, display signs and in-store leaflets
  • Phonics games; I spy or seeing if you can find something for every letter of the alphabet
  • Spelling; can you spell what you can see?


And when you get home your children can continue with learning about shopping skills. Role play shopping or play shopping games for example the Orchard Toys Shopping List game which helps children learn to read common labels whilst playing a fun matching game.
