During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter M. Here is our Tot School Letter M 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 M Books:
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown- A classic that everyone loves especially my girls. We have this in the board book form and hardcover. Preschool
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff – Another classic and such fun. My girls loved this and for days afterwards were asking if we could get a mouse and feed him a cookie. 🙂 Preschool – 3rd Grade
Over in the Meadow by Olive Wadsworth – I really enjoy this book illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats and how it flows like a song. I often catch myself singing it. The girls enjoy it and get to practice their counting too. Preschool – 3rd Grade
Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! by Dr. Seuss – A delightfully fun book full of numerous possibilities on how Marvin K. Mooney can go. I like to pretend that the adult is telling Marvin how he can go to bed and my girls just laugh and laugh at the crazy ways. Preschool – Kindergarten
Mice Are Nice by Charles Ghigna – This is an excellent book. I had never heard of it but we all fell in love with it immediately. It is very clear that mice are the only pets you need. Preschool – 1st Grade
Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman – A baby bird goes searching for his mother and finds all kinds of creatures and things that are not his mother. My girls have loved this book since the first time we read it. Preschool – 2nd Grade
The Mitten by Jan Brett – This traditional Ukrainian tale is about a little boy who loses the mitten his grandmother makes for him in the snow. The forest creatures find the mitten and begin using it to keep warm. But just how far will the mitten stretch to hold them? And what happens when the little boy gets the mitten back? We really enjoyed this story and the artwork is simply gorgeous. Preschool – 3rd Grade
Mouse Count by Ellen Stoll Walsh – A snake finds 10 mice sleeping and decides to put them in a jar and counts them as he puts them in. When he goes off to find get another mouse, the mice uncount themselves out of the jar. We enjoyed counting to 10 and down from 10. Preschool – 1st Grade
Z is for Moose by Kelly Bingham – A fun alphabet book where Moose is so excited to be in the book he shows up at the wrong places. Preschool – 2nd Grade
And If the Moon Could Talk by Kate Banks – A sweet story that tells what the moon sees each night. My girls have a little obsession with the moon and just adored this book. Preschool – 1st Grade
Milk and Cookies by Frank Asch – Baby Bear and his parents have a sleep over at his grandparents. During the night, Baby Bear wakes up and sees a dragon in the basement. He then dreams about the dragon coming upstairs and eating all his milk and cookies! Luckily, his dad helps him understand. My girls loved this book. Preschool – 3rd Grade
