FAVORITE KID’S BOOKS PUZZLE
In honor of National Reading Month, we created a puzzle from Wordle.com. There are 6 titles of some of our favorite kids books. See if you can find them all with your child. Then, go check them out at the library if you haven't already read them.
LEARNING WITH NO BOUNDARIES!
Learners Lane is a state of mind – a way of being. When children love learning, when they read well and voraciously, they are not limited by any boundaries. They can go anywhere in the world that they want.
CAN YOU CATCH A LEAF?
Fall is so colorful and brisk. Red, purple, and yellow leaves crackle in the wind. Maple seeds become spinning helicopters. Intricate spider webs are everywhere. Go out with your child and find new shades of yellow, red and gold. Nature is an endless textbook of wonder.
CREATE A MUSICIAN – START CLAPPING
Learning is a natural part of growing. Clapping teaches rhythm and counting. Singing teaches sounds and words. Walking becomes a march of discovering new in textures, colors and sounds.
GROCERY STORE TREASURE HUNT
Imagine the grocery store as a treasure hunt. Children can hunt for letters, colors and numbers. They can count the number of apples in the cart. Better yet, they can help you put 5 apples in the cart. Make it a game.
HOW MANY COLORS DO YOU SEE?
How many children do you see? How many different colors? How many different shapes? How many shades of green? Ask your child. They can help you see with new eyes. You can help give them new words.
Did you ever realize how musical a voice is reading a children’s story? Children do. They will listen to parents read the same story over and over. It is music to their ears. Create music for your child today. Read them a story.
ACT OUT A STORY
Kids are natural jumpers, dancers and runners. Find their favorite book and ask them to act it out for you. Let them show you the jumping bunny, or the itsy, bitsy spider climbing, or the mouse looking for cookies. These active stories are great for a rainy day activity.
A soft bed – a quiet room – a moment alone – a loved teddy bear – a good book -- is there anything better? Give these gifts to your child. They truly are priceless.
