Literacy Launchpad For Parents
Potty training My Little Reader has provided some perfect opportunities for busting out some of my Literacy Launchpad fun for him (we've been pretty cooped up in the house).
This week we read The Three Little Pigs by James Marshall. Then we made pig and wolf masks just like my students did in class.
Acting out the story was a little above My Little Reader's head, so instead we just chased each other around, taking turns as the pig and the wolf. I recited some of the rhymes from the story as we chased and encouraged him to say some as well.
"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."
"Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin."
It was a hit with My Little Reader. Already thinking up which story we'll play with next week.
