Tot Talk Tuesday: A Love for Literacy

Standard

I had a fun opportunity to be the “Mystery Reader” in my daughter’s kindergarten class this morning!  What  fun time–more so than I expected.  She was all smiles and grins when I showed up book in hand.  And so was I. 

As a family who is crazy for books, this was the perfect opportunity to show it off.  I read Jamie Lee Curtis’ book, “Big Words for Little People” in which the reader is introduced to many grown-up sounding words like “consequence, patience, cooperate,” among others.  All are illustrated with hilarious art from Laura Cornell.  But the “biggest” big word of all is “LOVE.”  I love how they talk about the words being the language that connects us all. 

I also made and distributed little bookmarks to the class.  Simple and easy: I purchased pre-cut bookmarks for about $2.99 from a craft store, added some stickers, a ribbon, and a little blurb about who the mystery reader was and what we read.  They loved the special little treat–a reminder that books are great!
