I think I say this every month, but making connections is such an important skill and thankfully one that comes so naturally to our Lil’s.
Making connections to a text helps us create meaning of the text and helps us find the value in the text, as the connections show us the importance of the text.
Check out some of the connections Read and I made while reading Big Red Barn and Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type.

Big Red Barn - Lil' Explorers

Here are some of the connections we made while reading Big Red Barn:

  • Look, there is a barn like the one we built out of popsicle sticks
  • The mice are in the corn like the corn maze at the pumpkin patch
  • Look at the dogs just like Fancy and Trevor
  • The animals are sleeping just like we sleep at nap and bedtime
Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type - Lil' Creators
Here are some of the connections we made while reading Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type:
  • The cows want blankets because they are cold, just like when you cuddle with a blanket on the couch
  • The cows are typing a letter just like when Mommy and Daddy type on their computer.
  • No milk and no eggs, but we love to drink milk!
  • Duck is just like Donald Duck
  • They are trading the typewriter for blankets just like when you trade toys with brother
  • Duck is in the water like the waterpark
