Tip

Grownups, we know that making predictions about a book really helps children understand what they read. Comprehension is important because without it, kids don’t stay motivated to keep reading for very long. So ask your children a question or two about the book before you start reading. Talking with your child will help them get ready to read!

Activity

Play “I Spy” first sounds game — Practice beginning sounds with this simple “I spy” game at home, on a walk, or at the grocery store. Choose words with distinctive, easy-to-hear beginning sounds. For example, if you’re in the bathroom you can say, “I spy something red that starts with the “s” ssss sound (soap).”

It’s Wintertime, You Know

It’s wintertime, you know;
We will have some snow!

It’s wintertime, you know.

Five Little Snowmen

Five little snowmen standing in a row,
Standing straight and tall in the deep, cold snow.

And one little snowman melted away.
