Kindergarten - Book List

Many students begin to read in kindergarten (even just a little). Spend time celebrating what your child has learned, and enjoy reading together every day!

  • Spend FUN reading time together every day. Don’t focus on teaching and practicing reading – enjoy books and stories together.
  • Read to your child every day – even after they start reading. Invite them to join in.
  • Read books over and over – and even if she picks the same book AGAIN, it’s good for her!
  • Let your child pick the books. They will stay interested and learn a lot.
  • When it’s not fun or there are distractions, take a break. Keep reading enjoyable for everyone.
