Materials Procedure Observation Assessment
Read A Trip to the Firehouse by Wendy Cheyette Lewison, or any other book children enjoy.
Show children a book and point out the cover, the title or name of the book, and the author or writer's name. Then flip through the book and point out the words and pictures. Ask children to name some books they like.
Have a book parade. Encourage each child to choose a favorite book and march around the room, holding it up. Ask them to tell one reason why they like their book. Then arrange the books in line like a "parade" on a table, each book open enough to stand on its own.
