Happy New Year! We are so excited to begin the next step in our reading journey! Our new unit is about bigger books and bigger reading muscles. The children will begin reading books which will have more words and sentences.
During our first step, we are focusing on looking for the patterns an author uses in a story. Many stories will have some words repeat on each page with a few changes. An example would be:
I like dogs.
I like cats.
I like horses.
I like unicorns.
We love animals.
Encourage your child to look for these types of patterns. We have enjoyed reading Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. Many Pete books have patterns. See what books you may have that contains patterns.
