We are Stars - Reading Star Books

Every day since the first day of school, kindergarten students have been listening to and acting out a series of books that we call, "Star Books." Star books are a collection of great classic stories that the children like to hear over and over again. In fact, they hear them and love them so much, that they can retell these stories (almost word for word) after a short while. They can look at a picture and "read" it because they are very familiar with it. Some of our Star books include: "Caps for Sale", "The Three Billy Goats Gruff", "Where the Wild Things Are", and classic fairy tales such as "The Three Little Pigs", and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". During our partner reading today, the children in the picture were very much "reading" "Caps for Sale" and enjoying every minute of it!!
