Week 2: Space
BOOKS: Astro Girl, National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Space, Counting On Katherine
ARTICULATION: 50 Articulation Trials (stars and sun pages)
LANGUAGE: Battle Dice and Dot with Star Craft This craft activity is FUNctional (my favorite kind) and can double as cute room decor.
Week 3: Friendship and Kindness
BOOKS: Strictly No Elephants, Little Elliot, Big City, Melia and Jo, I Walk With Vanessa If you want to focus on inclusion, I highly recommend reading Strictly No Elephants. It’s a powerful book with a heartwarming message on how important it is to stick up for others.
ARTICULATION: Battle Dice and Dot with Kindness Cactus Craft

Week 4: Back to School
BOOKS: School’s First Day of School, The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes, Chrysanthemum I use the book The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes to open a discussion about problem-solving when things don’t go as planned. It can even be used with middle schoolers! Another fantastic option is Chrysanthemum, which talks about struggles with acceptance and gaining confidence in your self-worth.
ARTICULATION: 100 Articulation Trials (Back to School page), BTS Book Companions
