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.

After the Reading Session:

– Keep the conversation going! Use daily activities to encourage your child to say please and thank you. “Thank you for giving me a hug!”

– Hold an imaginary tea party for your child’s favorite stuffed animals. See if the stuffed animals are polite at tea time.

– Make your own fancy hat! If you can put it on your head, it can be a hat. grab an empty box, an empty toilet paper roll, crayons, glue, anything thing you want and make your own hats.

– Play dress up. Pretend to be a Cyclops and try on different hats.
