learning to read

My first day of kindergarten was a disappointment. I thought I would walk out of school at 3:00 p.m. knowing how to read. I had assumed the schedule would be: Day 1: Learn to read. Day 2: Read books. Children don’t become readers overnight (much to my dismay). Instead, parents and teachers support preliteracy skills that help children become readers at the right time. Preliteracy skills include holding a book right-side up and knowing that print goes left to right and from the top to the bottom of the page. It’s recognizing and saying rhyming words and understanding that a sentence is made up of words. That’s not all, but it’s all part of literacy readiness. As you read this magazine with your child—or listen to your older child read it…

welcome to kindergarten

Tex and Indi were visiting their new school for Welcome to Kindergarten Day. “This building is so big,” said Tex. “We’re never going to find our classroom!” “Sure we will,” said Dad. “We’ll just follow this map on Ms. French’s invitation to room 6.” “Look at those cool animal pictures!” said Indi. “I hope we get to make our own paintings.” “Hey, there’s our room!” Tex pointed. “See? Number 6.” “I’m so glad you could join us,” said Ms. French, smiling. “Come on in and see what’s inside.” Inside, Tex, Indi, and Dad found a cozy book nook, a big blue rug, tables and chairs, cubbies, art supplies, and more. “This is kind of like our old preschool room,” said Tex, “and also kind of different.” After everyone explored the room, Ms. French explained what a regular kindergarten…

we will!

In the springtime, Dad asked, “Who will help me build a pen for the pigs?” “We will!” said Emily and Andrew. So Emily, Andrew, and Dad built a pen. After the pigs arrived, Dad asked, “Who will help me unload the pigs into their pen?” “We will!” said Emily and Andrew. When the pigs were settled in their new pen, Dad asked, “Who will help me feed and water the pigs?” “We will!” said Emily and Andrew. All summer long, Emily and Andrew helped care for the pigs. They cleaned the pen. They made sure the gate was locked. They gave them fresh water. At the end of the summer, Emily and Andrew showed the pigs at the county fair. The pigs each won a blue ribbon. Emily and Andrew asked, “Who will help us celebrate with…

it’s called untitled

“Squeeze some squishy yellow paint into a bowl,” says our art teacher, Miss Rabbit. “Then squeeze blue into another bowl.” “This is fun!” I say, squeezing out the goopy paint. We put our heavy white papers on the floor and drip-drop globs of color from our brushes. Panda uses two brushes, one in each hand, like he is playing the drums. We keep painting for a while, quietly. Then it’s time to put away our brushes and paints. Each one has its own place on the shelf. We wash the floor with sponges and soapy water. Bubbles are everywhere! “What do you notice about Kitty’s painting?” Miss Rabbit asks. “I see blue,” Fox says. “I like the yellow. It looks like the sun or a school bus,” Giraffe says. “She made green!” Panda exclaims. “Kitty, what do you want…

taking a picture

It was a beautiful, sunny day, and Doña Rosa and her friends were taking a hike. “¡Mira las mariposas!” said Doña Rosa. “Those butterflies are colorful!” said Mary. “Wait,” said Lucy. “I want to take a picture of them.” She searched in her bag for her cell phone, but when Lucy looked up, the butterflies were gone. They continued to a small lake. “¡Mira los peces!” said Doña Rosa. “There are so many fish!” said Mary. “Great,” said Lucy. “I want to take a picture of them.” But before she could turn on the camera, the fish scattered. The three friends followed the trail until they came to a big waterfall. “¡Mira la catarata!” said Doña Rosa. Then she looked at Lucy. “¿Puedes tomar una foto?” Lucy smiled. “Yes, I can take a picture!” she said. And she snapped a…
