During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter N. Here is our Tot School Letter N 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 N Books:
Discovering Nature’s Alphabet by Krystina Castella and Brian Boyl – Beautiful photos showing letters hiding in nature. Definitely inspired us to get out and look for letters. 1st – 4th Grade
I Want to Be Somebody New! by Robert Lopshire – The girls and I enjoy Spot from Put Me in the Zoo. This time he wants to be a different animal. This book is great to encourage talks of why each of us special and unique and why we should be proud and happy with the way we are. Plus, my girls enjoyed making the different animal noises! Preschool – 2nd Grade
Quiet Night by Marilyn Singer – One frog, two owls, three geese are joined by increasingly larger numbers of different animals that keep ten campers from falling asleep in their tent. Preschool – 3rd Grade
The Perfect Nest by Catherine Friend – Jack the cat is building the perfect nest. It’s bound to attract the perfect chicken, who will lay the perfect egg, which will make the perfect omelet. We LOVED this book! It is so funny! The girls enjoyed it so much I had to read it again as soon as I finished. Guess what book I need to purchase now? 😉 I personally thought the ending was just so sweet. Preschool – 2nd Grade
Too Much Noise by Ann McGovern – Ah the noisy house that only gets noisier the more the owner visits the village wise man. This book is a great lesson in learning to appreciate what you have. The girls loved the animals and making the noises with them. Preschool – 3rd Grade
Swan Harbor: A Nature Counting Book by Laura Rankin – From sea roses to sandpipers and lobsters, there are 20 countable plants and animals that almost come to life. Preschool – 2nd Grade
Noisy Nora by Rosemary Wells – Ah the life of a middle child. Poor Nora, no one pays attention to her until the noise stops. My girls love to make noise so they enjoyed watching Nora make noise too. I enjoyed that it allowed us to talk about sharing our time with each other, being respectful with our noise, and that even if Mommy or Daddy can not pay attention right then it does not mean that they don’t love you. Preschool – 1st Grade
Bears in the Night by Stan and Jan Berenstain – A very simple book that teaches prepositions like over, under, through. The girls enjoyed it, especially because of how I read it. You just have to read this book with drama and flair! Whisper as the cubs sneak out, get suspenseful as the noise get scarier. It makes the book more fun for the kids and you! Plus I like to have the girls act out the prepositions. Preschool – 1st Grade
A Nest is Noisy by Dianna Hutts Aston – Introduces the world of nests, revealing the variety created by the world’s birds, animals, and insects. Kindergarten – 3rd Grade
Fancy Nancy’s Favorite Fancy Words: From Accessories To Zany by Jane O’Connor – Fancy Nancy provides one or more of her favorite fancy words for each letter of the alphabet, defines them, and uses some in sentences that show what they mean to her. Preschool – 2nd Grade
