The holidays are quickly approaching and it is time to think about gift giving.  Books make great gifts for children of all ages.  You could choose books about the holidays or your child’s favorite character.  Books are a wonderful way to develop your child’s vocabulary, language and world knowledge.

If your child is in P2, you could also choose books based on your child’s current Fountas and Pinnell reading level.  If you are not sure of your child’s current level, please contact your teacher.  If you are interested in giving books to other children, this could help you choose an appropriate book:

Kindergarten: Levels A-C

1st grade:  Levels C-I

2nd grade:  Levels I-M

3rd grade:  Levels M-P

4th grade:  Levels P-S

5th grade: Levels S-V
