Let’s learn to understand and use words from these themes:

    • Family (e.g., baby, child, teenager, adult)
    • School (e.g., to question, to answer, to study, to learn)
    • Community (e.g., gas station, grocery store, restaurant, arena)
  • With your child, draw and label a map of your community and include your home, the school and other features of the community.

Let’s learn to connect stories to personal experiences.

  • When reading a story, ask your child if certain settings (e.g., the beach), events (e.g., losing a toy), or characters (e.g., a silly clown) remind him or her of experiences from his or her own life. Provide examples from your own experience.

Let’s learn to generate alternative endings to stories.

  • After reading a story, share other possible endings. Make them silly, happy or unbelievable.
