During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter O. Here is our Tot School Letter O 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 O Books:
The One and Only 1, 2, 3 Book by R.O. Blechman – Walking, talking numbers showing off what makes them the best and a few lost alphabet letters. Preschool – 2nd grade
Toot & Puddle Puddle’s ABC by Holly Hobbie – Puddle teaches Otto the alphabet. Cute, fun book. Preschool – 1st grade
Sam and the Firefly by P.D. Eastman – This book is so much fun! Sam the owl becomes friends with a firefly named Gus, they fly through the air writing words. It’s all fun and games until the words cause problems for the people below. Then Sam must help Gus fix his mistake. The girls just loved this book. Preschool – 2nd grade
The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor by Joanna Cole – My girls love the Magic School Bus books and show. Both of them are obsessed with fish and all things ocean related so this book was perfect. Kindergarten – 4th Grade
Each Orange Had 8 Slices A Counting Book by Paul Giganti, Jr – A neat counting book that introduces beginning math concepts while reinforcing visual literacy. Great for getting kids thinking. Preschool – 3rd grade
Please Try to Remember the First of Octember! by Theodore LeSieg (Dr. Seuss) – This book is a hoot. On the first of Octember all your wildest dreams will come true. I enjoyed asking the girls what crazy dream they wanted to come true. Preschool – 2nd grade
Count with Hooty Owl, Officer Montey of Monaco from Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever – These two Richard Scarry stories were fun. Hooty counts groceries while shopping with his mother. Officer Montey keeps everyone safe. Preschool – 2nd grade
Owl and the Moon from Owl at Home by Arnold Lobel – I loved Owl at Home as a child. Now I get the pleasure of reading this book to my girls. They really enjoyed Owl and the Moon. When Cakey was little and just learning to talk she used to look up at the night sky and say, “Moon? Yo?” It was adorable and one of the Cake-isms I miss. Preschool – 2nd grade
Ocean Counting: Odd Numbers by Jerry Pallotta – A fun, ocean themed book showing a different way to count using only odd numbers from 0 to 50. 2nd – 4th grade
