During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter L. Here is our Tot School Letter L Books list.
I have been trying to read about 2 books a day or 10 books a week that fall in the theme for that week. Of course, our main focus is letters but sometimes I’ll throw in a book or two about numbers, shapes, or colors.
I am teaching both Cakey and Doodles. Although I’m teaching at Cakey’s level, I try to throw in a book or two for Doodles each week, but a good majority of the books are above both the girls. I love to challenge them through reading this way. Interestingly enough after just few weeks of doing this, both the girls are enjoying and asking for the more challenging books to be read during “non-school” time!
Below is a list of books we read for Tot School Letter L Books:
26 Letters and 99 Cents by Tana Hoban – A picture book with both picture letters and a toy picture to represent that letter. The number side is represented by change and picture numbers. Preschool – 3rd grade
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss – In all my years, I never read The Lorax until now. As many may know it’s an environmental book with a serious message told in that classical Dr. Seuss way. While The Lorax was over the girls’ heads they did enjoy it and we had a good discussion afterwards. Grade 1st – 4th grade
Roar!: A Noisy Counting Book by Pam Edwards – A lion cub’s roar frightens away other colorful animals, like one red monkey and eight brown gazelles, that he wants to play with. That is until he encounters nine other lion cubs. The girls loved this noisy counting book! Preschool – 2nd Grade
Randy’s Dandy Lions by Bill Peet – The lions suffer from stage fright and can not perform for the circus audience. The girls really enjoyed this book, especially since James read it to them. They love it when James reads to them. Preschool – 3rd grade
Who Sees the Lighthouse? by Ann Fearrington – A mostly nautical-themed counting book. It does loose it’s nautical-theme when cats and especially Martians show up. The artwork is beautiful and the girls really enjoyed counting the objects on each page. At the end there is a list of all 11 US lighthouses. Preschool – 3rd grade
Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert – This educational book on the life of maple tree is told from the point of view of a young child. With it’s gorgeous pictures and big text it is great for fall themed lessons and nature activities. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Preschool – 3rd grade
Letter Lunch by Elisa Gutiérrez – Hoping for a tasty alphabet lunch, a hungry brother and sister search for edible letters all over from their back yard to the top of the mountain in this no text book. Preschool – 2nd grade
Tawny Scrawny Lion by Kathryn Jackson – The tawny scrawny lion is one very hungry lion but luckily the little rabbit knows what to do to fill the lion up. The girls really enjoy this book. Preschool – 2nd grade
The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge by Hildegarde H Swift – A few things that are awesome about this book are that it is a great story about the joy of helping others, that regardless of your size you can be a help to others, and it is about a real life bridge and lighthouse in New York. I think the metaphor that you can help even if you are little is truly inspiring for children. Preschool – 3rd grade
One Lighthouse, One Moon by Anita Lobel – Broken up into three “mini chapters” this book teaches the days of the week, followed by the months of the year, and finally counting from 1-10. The beautiful artwork allow for so many discussions and questions. Preschool -3rd grade
