Peeny Butter Fudge

This week’s words are patience, fudge, recipe, and rhythm from the book Penny Butter Fudge. Click the video below to listen to the story.  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.

Waiting patiently in line

Patience is the ability to be calm and wait without getting upset or angry. Ask your child to show you how to be patient while waiting in a store or while in line.


Fudge is a type of soft candy.

Cookbook with recipes

A recipe is a list of ingredients and instructions for making a food dish. Ask your child what a recipe is. Tell him or her what your favorite recipe is. If you have time, make the recipe together.

Making a rhythm clapping hands

Rhythm is a pattern of sounds. Play a game with your child where he or she makes up a clapping rhythm and you try to copy it.

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

Thank you for helping your child!
