🌟 The Power of High Frequency Mini Readers! πŸ“šπŸ”

Hey parents and educators! Today, let's talk about the amazing benefits of high frequency mini readers for preschoolers! πŸŽ‰

High frequency mini readers are small books with simple words and phrases that kids encounter everyday. They help build reading skills and expand vocabulary.
So, why are they important? Here are a few reasons:
1️⃣ Boosts confidence: By reading familiar words, kids feel accomplished and motivated to read more.
2️⃣ Sight word recognition: They focus on frequently used words, building a strong foundation for future reading skills.
3️⃣ Expands vocabulary: Kids learn new words in meaningful contexts.
4️⃣ Improves reading fluency: Repeated practice builds smooth, confident reading skills.
How can we use them effectively?
βœ… Make reading a routine.
βœ… Encourage interaction and ask questions.
βœ… Offer praise and support for progress, not perfection.
Let's dive into the world of high frequency mini readers and watch our little ones become confident readers! πŸŒΌπŸ“–

On our first day of school a sweet little buddy struggled so hard to leave his mom and dad. As I walked up to them I realized they all had a little ❀️ on their hand and at that moment I was reassured that this special story literally touches so many hearts as kids venture on to their very 1st days of school.

"The Kissing Hand" is a heartwarming children's book written by Audrey Penn that can play a significant role in helping children adjust to school, particularly preschool. It centers around the story of a young raccoon named Chester and his experience with separation anxiety on his first day of school. Here's how this special book aids children in transitioning to school:
🩷Addressing separation anxiety
🧑The concept of reassurance
πŸ’›Familiarizing with routine
πŸ’šSense of belonging
🩡Acknowledging feelings

Chester's sweet story provides children with valuable emotional support, reassurance, and a sense of belonging while navigating the unfamiliar territory of preschool. It helps them understand that their concerns and fears are valid, but also offers strategies to cope with separation anxiety, fostering a smoother adjustment to school life.

We are so excited to continue this theme through our 1st full week of preschool! We will make a special handprint keepsake, draw our very own special raccoon, count and estimate hearts, talk about nocturnal animals, continue to help our kids navigate all their feels and their new environment, and best of all give our kids so many resources and hand on learning materials to help them flourish in their new learning wonderland! ❀️
