Number plates for the cars worked for us, graph paper and design sheets on clipboards when we had a builders yard, treasure maps and pirates, pizza order forms when doing a takeaway service, sticks and wet sand, paint brushes and water. . . .

we were part of a LA initative to improve boys writing last acedemic year and the focus for us in nursery was outdoor.We were given some selected (expensive) resources the the person on secondment to deliver the intiative choose and bought :o We were asked to photograph the children using them for her evidence.I'll look through my files xD

When we have the police hats out the boys want to write on a note pad!!!!!!!!!

 

We have a dino topic going on at present and Terry (Terry Rex) the inflatable dino likes letters and he has a line there by him for you to peg a letter to!!!!

Very popular.

 

In Dora's Den there are letters too for Dora and Diego!

I did a google search: "boys writing outdoors" quite a list of links here's some of them;

 

BGFL

 

FOREST SCHOOL PROJECT on BOYS WRITING

 

Raising Boys achievements

 

Pocket Pal Boys & writing Teachers Guide from Amazon

 

outdoor education research A-Z

 

Looks like there is a lot to read up on this subject, from my quick scan reading it also appears that outdoor provision seems to be very positive for improving boys outcomes in wriing. :o
