This year one of our wonderful partners, The Treehouse Children's Museum, stepped forward to support these incoming kindergarten students by creating an Early Learning Initiative Committee. This committee has worked hard to create an activity book and plan some activities that will support school readiness skills. Through their efforts, every incoming kindergarten student will be given a copy of the Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten Activity Book, a book, a pencil, and a small book bag.
A kindergarten teacher, Elementary K, reads aloud "Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten" by author Joseph Slate. The book is illustrated by Ashley Wolff. The characters in the book are all animals whose names have alliteration with the first and last name as well as the animal that the character is. The book also incorporates rhyming words and rhythm that help the story flow.
