Into the Tub

Young children will have fun getting into – and out of – the tub with Sadie. A precocious mouse with a mind of her own, the defiant Sadie is gently coaxed into a bath and later into bed by her patient mommy.

This is more than just an adorable storybook about a cute mouse–it’s a unique tool that teaches families how to use essential reading strategies at home. Embedded symbols prompt parents to know exactly when to incorporate strategies to support their child’s reading readiness.. As an added benefit, families will use these strategies as a springboard to apply with any book read aloud at home since the strategies are not title specific.

Description

Young children will have fun getting into – and out of – the tub with Sadie. A precocious mouse with a mind of her own, the defiant Sadie is gently coaxed into a bath and later into bed by her patient mommy.

There’s more to story time than just reading aloud!

Parents can begin to easily incorporate literacy strategies used by the most effective educators of young children by using the StoryTime Strategies and StoryTime Activities found within this book.

Into the Tub easily teaches PreK and Kindergarten parents to use the following three essential reading strategies with their children:

  • Picture Talk – Expands vocabulary and enhances prediction skills
  • Chime Time – Develops phonological awareness
  • Tell It Again – Strengthens comprehension skills by retelling the story

These strategies, plus the additional activities included in the back of the book, assist parents in teaching reading readiness skills when reading with children as young as two.

Rather than just giving a book to families, teachers can use Into the Tub to help model and practice the StoryTime Strategies with parents during:

  • Kindergarten Orientation
  • Literacy Workshops
  • Parent Conferences
  • Parent Involvement Activities

Great for Title I schools, Head Start, and districts with parent involvement initiatives!
