Preparing for our Read Aloud:

– Dress the part. Find a fun “rain hat”, a t-shirt with an umbrella on it, or pop on some rain boots. Looking for an excuse to use that secret stash of lighting bolt tattoos? You’re in luck. 

– Print out the free coloring sheet and let your book detective do some coloring before the reading session. Kids will have a chance to show their pictures at the beginning of class.

Let’s Play Pretend

After the Reading Session:

– Keep the conversation going! Invite your child to imagine you are both on an adventure.

– Invite your stuffed animals to join you for a healthy snack.

– Draw your family tree. Challenge your child to remember as many families members or friends that they can and draw a tree around all the names.
