I have worked with young children my whole life. In my last job I was an early literacy speciaist. I came up with this idea for helping young boys get more excited about spelling and reading. The truck is pretty basic. I just laminated some construction grade spruce together, what makes this truck neat is the magnetic sheet on the flat bed.
This sheet is the type of stuff you buy to use with your computer’s printer to print out fridge magnets. I glue the sheet to the flat bed and use magnetic letters that I bought at a dollar store to play a game. I leave the letters stuck to things around the house, the kids drive around and collect the letters, stick them to the flatbed to form words. It is like making word deliveries. It is fun.
