Hurricane Sandy Aftermath

 

Good morning everyone, I am so grateful that Hurricane Sandy has finally passed over  and is gone. It has been a very frightening time not only for me and my family but also for everyone living on the east coast. My home was without electricity for 24 hours, and I am very thankful that our power came back on last night. My children were really great through this whole experience and I am so thankful that they were not too scared about what was going on and that we were able to stay with my sister and her family and just make it through this experience.

So many people have been affected by the harsh and terrifying storm that swept over us over the past few days. My prayers go out to the families who lost their loved ones during the hurricane and also to those who lost their homes.

This is definitely a time for everyone to come together, pray and help out as much as possible in any way that they can because so many people have lost so much during these past few days.

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.

 

 

 

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.

All of the above books were Created in consultation with a language expert, this book is part of an engaging new phonics-based series, especially written to help your child learn to read.  Not only is the story great fun, it also takes into account recent research on the most effective ways of teaching reading.  Stephen Cartwright’s delightful illustrations complement the text and are designed to stimulate further interest.  Fold out pages add to the enjoyment.
