During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter R. Here is our Tot School Letter R 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 R Books:

If Rocks Could Sing by Leslie McGuirk – I loved this book. The author found the rocks in the shape of the letters and pictures all along the beach by her house. It’s truly amazing! The girls enjoyed looking at each rock and have since started pointing out rocks that resemble other things! Preschool – 2nd grade
Ten Little Rabbits by Virginia Grossman – This is a fun counting book. The girls loved the Native American patterns and scenes and of course the rabbits! I loved that not only did it teach counting but it also included the rabbits doing traditional Native American things. It was math and history all in one! Preschool – 2nd grade
