How to Teach a _____ to Read

Today we finished reading an adorable book called, How to Teach a Slug to Read by Susan Pearson.  It was so fun.  Then we talked about who taught us to read and what we remember about it....cuz it was sooo long ago.  Since it is fall and pumpkins are so popular, we made a page for our upcoming book called, How to Teach a Pumpkin to Read.  Here are some ideas:

Ask your pumpkin questions about the story.
Get the pumpkin's favorite story and make it a good size for reading.
Get it's favorite book.  Make it repeat after you.
Read the same book over and over.
Teach the pumpkin how to stretch out the words.
Tell the pumpkin to sound out the words.
How would you teach a pumpkin to read?
Happy Thursday,

  2. That's a cute idea. It's interesting to see their different perspective on what's important about learning how to read. :)
