Wilson peeps! It’s your time to shine today!

“It was a long haul from yesterday’s visit! I found a very convenient stop for a cold drink and a snack. Yum! I think I’ll stay here for the day.”

Today’s location is well known throughout the Wilson area. This business has been open for generations and was at one time, run by the entire family, including 9 children!!!! It’s name was created by putting the parents’ names together.

Question of the Day: Think about a time you met a new group of kids. How did you feel?

Tip #3
Punch vocabulary
Make the language in a story by choosing a word in each sentence and doing something more with it: enunciate it, whisper it, elongate it, emphasize it! It will help capture your child's interest and enliven the prose.

08/03/2020

You should begin working on Family Project 2 today!

07/03/2020

Tip #1
Match the reading style to the book.
While there are some books that work well with a quieter, monotone style, a book like Betty G. Birney's "Friendship According to Humphrey" works well with a playful style and lots of enthusiasm.

Tip #2
How to make time
Prioritize in order to make the daily reading an important part of your routine. Sometimes this means putting off a chore, and sometimes it may mean not watching a television show. You can read to your child at bedtime or fit it in between other activities. It only takes about 15 minutes to read each chapter.

06/03/2020

Humphrey is out and about today, but PLEASE use extra caution if you decide to visit him. Your safety is our #1 concern.

Humphrey says, “When I arrived here for the day, ready to learn and play, no one was around. There wasn’t a child to be found! I called Mr. Stevens, to find out the reasons! He told me a snow day was keeping the children away.”❄️

Bonus tip!
Permit another activity
Kids will get distracted-for a good reason: because they've made an association and are pursuing it. When pausing and whispering and slowing down aren't enough, it's okay to let them color or draw or doodle-or braid their hair or wash the dishes-to let their restless minds re-focus on your story.

02/03/2020

We cannot wait for you to dive into chapter 1 tonight!

Question of the Day: Why does Humphrey feel jealous when Og appears in the classroom?
