How to Use This Course

Each Pre-K Activities: Read and Play lesson revolves around a particular story. Many of these favorite children’s books may be on your bookshelves or on the shelves of your local library. Begin the lesson by sitting down in a comfortable place with your child and reading the story to him or her. After reading the story, try some of the fun activities suggested. These can help your child gain a deeper understanding of the story and retain what they have learned. The activities range from painting to baking to playing games and more. Spend some special time with your preschooler reading special stories to them while at the same time helping them discover the world around them.
