Dear Early Childhood Families,
Every year, a few weeks before spring break I create a list of new books that I hope our students in early childhood can enjoy over the break. These titles are fun, interactive and perfect for the youngest members of our community. I cannot express how important it is to read to kids for exposure, language and literacy skills. Please take ten to twenty minutes each day to enjoy a story one on one or include the whole family in a read aloud.
I hope you have a fun, happy and safe break!
