Happy Grandparent's Day. It was a joy to celebrate with you this morning during our breakfast. The children love the cuddles!
At The Goddard School - Allen - West our teachers love reading to children of all ages because they know that it has immense benefits, including improving visual, cognitive, language and social-emotional development.

It’s never too early or too late to start — here are some ways to read with your child children at every age!

📖 Choose durable books for infants. Touching, holding and mouthing are all part of their learning process!
📖 Make it interactive with toddlers. Point out pictures, ask questions like, “can you find the sun?” or “how do you think they feel?” and bring the story to life with sound effects.
📖 Ask your preschooler to choose the books. This supports their self-expression and decision-making skills.
📖 Pick stories that have rhymes and repeat the rhyming words together with your pre-k or kindergartner. This helps them with letter-sound recognition as they get ready to learn to read on their own.

Find reading tips for every age at GoddardSchool.com!
Has your summer felt like this? Invite your child to help by making it a game. “How much can you clean up before this timer runs out?” Be silly and ask them if their socks go in the kitchen drawer. Then ask them to show you where they go.
How’s your child feeling about school lately? 🤔

Even if they love learning as much as these Goddard students, it’s easy to forget how much fun school can be (we get it — summer is fun, too!). Luckily, it's easy to reconnect with what makes learning at The Goddard School - Allen - West exciting.

Back to school means back to packing lunches. If you dread this daily task, try some of these easy lunch hacks!
🍎 Slice an apple and then wrap it up with a rubber band to prevent browning.
🍎 Use cookie cutters to make sandwiches into fun shapes like flowers or hearts.
🍎 Take smaller, metal cookie cutters to slice shapes into fruits and veggies. Apples, carrots, cucumbers and melons work great!
🍎 Flatten sandwich bread with a rolling pin, fill it with your choice of foods like hummus and cucumbers, roll it up and slice to make sandwich rollups.
🍎 Add sprinkles to almost any food to make it more enticing! Sprinkles can also be savory — like chia or h**p seeds.
