  2. Read a book about presidents.  Discuss who our president is. Where does he live? Who are some of our other presidents?
  3. Read your child's favorite book.  Ask them how they could change the ending.  What character do they like the most or least? Draw a picture to go with the story.  Is this book a make believe story or a true story.  What is the difference in a make believe story and a true story?
  4. Count beans, macaroni, crackers, etc. 1 to 10. Put them in groups of 2, 3, 4, and 5.
