Quinito, Day and Night

Our new words are climb, slide, long, and short. The words come from the book Quinito, Day and Night. 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.

Climbing a tree

To climb is to move upward and go towards the top. Ask your child what kind of animals climb trees.


To slide is to move or slip down. What animals might slide into water or on ice and snow? 

Short and long pencil

Long and short are opposites in length. Play a game where your child needs to find two long things and two short things in your home.


As you’re going through the week, try to talk about each word three times.
