ABSTRACT
This article focuses on literacy learning on the playground. Despite common teaching strategies, providing opportunities for literacy development during outdoor play is not as customary. Teachers can quickly remedy this unfortunate oversight with a few simple additions to their outdoor play areas. The teacher-tested activities, which require normal expense, minimal preparation and little cleanup, include providing sidewalk chalk for drawing and writing and burying small items in the sandbox.
