Here’s a fun challenge you can try with your children or students. Play with language with fantastic games for literacy!
One of the activities to encourage reading and handwriting is to practice writing the letters of the alphabet. But copying individual letters as part of handwriting practice and be, well, let’s face it, pretty boring. To make it a but more enjoyable and possibly even amusing, challenge your kids to write and create PANGRAMS!
What’s a Pangram?
A pangram is a sentence using every letter of the alphabet at least once.
Here are 8 great Australian examples shared by homeschooling mum, Katya:
- The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.
- The five boxing wizards jump quickly.
- Zoe and Fred specialise in the job of making very quaint wax toys.
- A large fawn jumped quickly over white zebras in a box.
- We quietly gave Bert a handsome prize for his six juicy pink plums.
- Crazy Fredrick bought many very exquisite opal jewels.
- Five or six big jet planes zoomed quickly past the tower.
- My grandfather picks up quartz and valuable onyx jewels.
We’d love to see what you and your children can create so share your own pangrams in the comments!
