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!
We packed sandwiches cookies and juice (pretend to pack)
And went for a walk to the park (pretend to walk)
We found a tree with lots of shade (raise arms overhead)
And spread our blanket beneath (spread blanket)
But what do you think happened? (shrug shoulders)
When we started to eat our food (pretend to eat)
One squirrel scampered over (hold up & wiggle one finger)
Two birds hopped close by (2 fingers hopping)
And hundreds of ants marched up to us (wiggle all fingers)
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.
Go outdoors and enjoy a picnic. Then talk about how many square items you have and how many circles you have.
