Reading with the Ducklings

Take time to read 2 books with your child, one fiction and one non-fiction. Put your child's first name and the book title on the ducks you received, yellow for the fiction book and blue for the non-fiction book.

Ducks will be displayed on the foyer bulletin board and everyone will see what good readers the Hackmann Ducklings are!
