BOOKS TO READ

From the library ...


From our book shelves..


  • Fish and Frog By Michele Knudsen ( image below)
  • Lucy and Bob by David Martin  ( image below)
 Our daughter enjoyed reading this paperbacks , the words are very simple. The illustrations are beautiful and simple..not too busy for preschoolers who are learning how to read.

We always start by saying the letter out loud. Teaching her the phonetic sound of the letter. Next is the line tracing and letter tracing of both  upper case and lower case letter F)

We painted a fish bowl too... there is nothing more enjoyable for little kids than a messy painting activity.

We played a finding nemo puzzle. Lucy loves to play with puzzles, it does help with their fine motor skills by trying to fit each puzzle pieces, and patience.



I gathered a few pieces of things in our house that starts with the letter F. I read the words to her , pointing at the object. Then I shuffled all the words and asked her to place the matching words to the objects. It teaches her word familiarity .


We played the Let's Go Fishin' game. I do recommend this game, it is fun for them and it does help in their eye-hand coordination , concentration and can I tell you again that it teaches PATIENCE? . It does! Trust me , this 4 year old..lacks it , but it is understandable.
