Kindergarten Readiness – Resolution to Read #5

No matter if your child is starting kindergarten this year or even 3 or 4 years down the road, reading a story several times a week is one of the best kindergarten readiness activities. It’s a fun resolution to keep, too.

Books that have a repetitive pattern–such as the Gingerbread man who says ” I can run away from you, I can, I can–involve kids in the process. Once they have heard a story a few times, they learn the pattern and love to say it with you or by themselves. If an adult accidentally reads it wrong they quickly supply the correct way.

Sometimes, they “read’ the story on their own or to their stuffies and may  make up new parts using the same pattern. Pattern books are useful tools for later learning to read. There are many pattern stories. These two favorites come in board books so they don’t wear out!

Do you have some other titles to suggest with great patterns?
