Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

The past two weeks have been all about Dr. Seuss and we celebrated the beloved author by doing his two favorite things... being silly and rhyming! Last week we dressed up in our silly socks, silly hair-dos and cozy pajamas. We read Hop on Pop, Fox in Socks, Ten Apples up on Tops and The Cat in the Hat. While reading these stories we listened closely for "words that sound the same at the end". Rhyming is an important early literacy skill that teaches children to listen for the sounds within words and encourages them to anticipate and predict words within text. Rhyming is also important for writing. It can help children understand that words that share common sounds share common letters, like cat and hat share -at. But most importantly, it makes reading fun! Rhymes, especially Dr. Seuss rhymes, are silly! We did a lot of laughing these past two weeks :) Next week, we will continue focusing on goofy rhyming words.

Volunteer in the Classroom

I have shared a link below to the classroom volunteer calendar. Assisting in the classroom is a great way to get involved and to learn what your child's school day is like. You can choose to stay for the whole class session or if it works better for your schedule you can just stop by to be a special story time reader. While in the classroom I may have a special project for you or I may just have you interacting and playing with the kids. Please sign up for a date and time that works best for you.

4K Volunteer Schedule

Before your first time volunteering you have to complete a background check with the school district. Here is a link for the background check:

I look forward to and appreciate any time you can share!
