Terry's Tips

Learning new vocabulary words is very important! The more words children know, the more they will understand what they read and hear.

Reading storybooks with children is a good way to help them learn new words. Before you read this story, pick out three or four new words to teach as you read. Remember that you can click on underlined words to find their meanings in the glossary. The coaches will also help children think about the meanings of words.
