Pull-back Busy Train Book

Busy Train

Hi everyone, how is your week turning out so far? Well I hope that it is turning out to be a great week for everyone. I have been a bit under the weather lately but I still wanted to share my book of the week  with you  all.

Pull-back Busy Train Book is just such a cute interactive book written by author Fiona Watt  from Usborne Books. I had to share this book with you  guys.

This is an awesome book for little ones who love trains. Children will love to watch the train as it whizzes around the tracks in this delightful interactive book. There are colorful scenes with embedded tracks provide lots to see and talk about as the train begins its busy morning at the station, before zooming though tunnels, out into the countryside and over a viaduct before reaching its destination. It is definitely a wonderful gift to be shared together again and again, perfect for young train lovers.

This book is for any child 3 years and up, there are 10 pages of pure enjoyment for your little one.

 

 

 

Literacy Tip Of the week

Do you know a struggling reader?

 Or a child who hates to read? Read aloud to them at least 30 minutes a day, and seek help immediately from a  teacher trained in high quality reading remediation. You will be giving a child hope and the skills to succeed in life.

Having books readily available around the house is a great idea to encourage reading. I have a little box filled with story books next to my kids bed, as well as a box of story books next to their toys in the living room. You can come up with your own creative ways to have books around the house as well, like maybe even having a few in the car. A good idea is to have not just books but even comic books, magazines etc.. things that you know that will interest your child. If your child likes dinosaurs, butterflies, science or dolls, then make sure to have a few story books and magazines about those things. Your little one will love it, and  remember that  learning to read should always be fun and for children.

Encouraging your child to read and reading to them for at least 20 minutes each day is a great way to help your child/children fall in love with books and reading.

Your Kindergartener & Reading

By the end of kindergarten, most children can recognize and write upper and lower case letters. Most kindergartners can read some words and simple books. Kindergartners learn that writing goes from left to right. Kindergartners can understand more than just the plot of a story

Encouraging Your Kindergartner

  • Let your child read the words and offer help only when it’s needed
  • Let your child “share” the reading with you
  • Keep reading sessions short
  • Encourage your child to track the print with a finger, pointing to each word as she/he says it.
  • Don’t limit reading to just books

Reading can be made a part of your childs life by encouraging them to read at any point in the day example: at the grocery store they can help find items on the grocery list, while in the car they can read the street signs as they go by. If you are out shopping they can help you read the isle names and clothing racks. Learning to read  should always be encouraged and nurtured by you. Be an example to your child and always remember to get appropriate age leveled reading for your you young one.

Here is a list of Kindergarten age appropriate books that will definitely help your young one grow in their reading.
