May through September 2018
As part of Summer Reading at New York Libraries, the State Education Department and myON are partnering to bring thousands of enhanced digital books to children from birth through 8th grade and their families all around the state!
Let’s Pretend. Read the poem I Am A Rocket. Then act it out.
I am a rocket
crouched on the ground,
without a sound.
Light this fuse
on my little toe…
Ready for take-off?
Here I go: SWOOOOOOOOOOSH
When you visit this website tomorrow there will be two new books for you to enjoy. Visit your local library to take home a copy of this book or click here to find your local public library. Check here to see what books are coming next or look back on what we’ve read so far this year.
Help your child make a noise maker out of pasta, cereal or any bits of something hard. Place items in a paper cup and tape another on top. Use it to shake to the beat while singing rhymes!
