It’s time to introduce you all to this month’s focus book.

Concepts About Print
How do you teach this? It is really simple, just use your finger to point to each word as you read it.
Rex Wrecks It! is a great book for this skill because it is not heavy in text. We often read faster than our finger can move, but if you pick books that have minimal text per page, you can really accentuate the fact that you are reading each word as you touch it.
Make Observations and Draw Conclusions
Here are some of the observations and conclusions Rea and I made while reading Rex Wrecks It!
- Oh no! Rex knocked over all the blocks! His friends don’t look very happy…
- Wow! Sprinkles built an awesome heart.
- Oh no! Rex ruined all of his friends’ buildings!
- Wow! Gizmo, Sprinkles, and Wild built a big castle.
- All of Rex’s friends are sad because he ruined their castle. Rex is sad too.
- Wow! Rex is going to build with them. Maybe that will keep Rex from wrecking their building.
- All the friends wrecked their big tower together. They’re all happy and having fun because they did it together.
Here are some of the connections we made while reading Rex Wrecks It!
- They built a tower out of blocks; we have blocks too! We should try to build a tower later.
- Sprinkle’s built a heart. I like hearts.
- They are drawing a plan just like when you draw a picture.
- They built a big tower. It looks like the castle in Rapunzel.
- They are all building together, just like when you play with your friends together.
