Anansi and his Children

This week we read Anansi and his Children. Our words from this book are spider, stone, curious, and construct. Ask your child what the story was about. Play the video below to hear a story about Anansi.


Ask your child what each word means, and if they don’t know, explain the meaning to them or show them an example. Here are easy definitions to use.


A spider is a small animal with eight legs. Play the itsy bitsy spider with your child, or talk about what spiders look like or do. 


A stone is a small rock. Talk about the differences between a pebble, stone, and boulder. 

Curious George

Curious means that you want to learn or know about something. You could ask your child what Curious George does that is curious. 


Construct means to build. Help your child to construct something with blocks or other toys. See if they can use the word construct when showing you what they are making. 

Thank you!
