In the backpacking community there is a term that I love and have experienced- “trail magic”. Trail Magic essentially is an experience of connectedness or an answered need that helps a hiker be able to continue on the journey or, refreshes them. For some this is a tangible item or supply that they find or another backpacker provides. For others, this may be a connection to nature such as the awe of a mountaintop that makes the pain and struggle of getting there diminish and refreshes you to keep going.
During this journey, both regarding dyslexia and COVID-19, One-in-Five Dyslexia wants to bring you a bit of Trail Magic along the way. It is our hope that these items and moments of “Trail Magic” will encourage and equip each of us as we #Journey Together.
The first bit of Trail Magic for you to discover is a game, Trail Magic at Home, to help create connections with each other, help provide some innovative ideas to keep busy, and even practice reading and writing skills in a more informal way during this time at home.
As part of this community, there are so many times of struggle just to get the assignment/project/chore DONE. On top of that, many of us are working from home and trying to balance homeschooling with 24 hour-a-day family time. Hopefully, this game will provide a way to change things up a bit and have some fun with our kids during this time at home. This game is for everyone!
