LET’S PRACTICE: We are dedicating each day of the week to one of the five practices developed through the American Library Association’s Every Child Ready to Read initiative: talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. Every day we will post a prompt to our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages to give families concrete ideas for practice.
MONDAY – TALKING
TUESDAY – SINGING
WEDNESDAY – READING
THURSDAY – WRITING
FRIDAY – PLAYING
Let’s Practice – September 27 – October 1
THIS WEEK’S THEME: NIGHT
Tuesday: Let’s Practice Singing
Sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” with Laurie from the Sumas Library
Wednesday: Let’s Practice Reading
Read a picture book about the night. The Night World by Mordicai Gerstein is a great book about how dark (and fun) it is at night.
Thursday: Let’s Practice Writing
Did you know that the stars make patterns in the sky? They are called Constellations. Starry Skies by Samantha Chagollan shows some of the constellations. Trace the lines in the book with your finger or draw some of the shapes on paper.
Friday: Let’s Practice Playing
There’s a famous book called In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak. Play Night Kitchen at your house. You can pretend to bake a cake and fly off in your own plane to get milk from the moon.
