A Grand Old Tree

grand-old-treeThis week your child is learning the words roots, creatures, landscape, and bask.  The words come from the book, A Grand Old Tree. Watch the video below to hear the storybook being read. Listen for the vocabulary words and point them out to your child.

Ask your child what each word means, and if they don’t know, explain the meaning to them or show them an example. As you’re going through the week, try to talk about each word three times.
