In April we focused on reading books related to nutrition and eating healthily. Below are some of our favorites this month.
- The Complete Tales & Poems of Winnie the PoohThe Complete Tales & Poems of Winnie the Pooh: We read several stories from this book, the Heffalump one was a favorite. It also has poems in the back. We read those and used a couple for copywork.
Preschool Picture Books:
- Pie Rats Ahoy – I will definitely check out more books about pirates from now on.
- If You Give A Mouse a Cookie – Such a cute story, a classic. This is a great story for teaching sequence and cause and effect.
- Si le Das una Galletita a un Raton – Of course, we had to read it in Spanish. It helps to build vocabulary and work on comprehension skills when reading a story in two languages.
- Good Enough to Eat: A Kid’s Guide to Food and Nutrition – This book will offer a great introduction to eating healthy for children. My kids were especially fond of the page regarding the digestive system. They were amazed to know there are two intestines with distinctive functions.
- Sylvia’s Spinach – Sylvia’s seeds are the last ones to sprout and she doesn’t like spinach either. Very cute story about patience, diligence, and learning to eat a new vegetable.
First Grader Independent Reading:
- Amelia Bedelia Means Business – This book is based on young Amelia Bedelia. My daughter absolutely loved this one and had her laughing really hard.
- Disney Fairies Fairy Tales a Treasury – Build reading comprehension and confidence when children read familiar stories. My daughter loves the Tinker Bell movies so reading this book was very fun for her.
