Host puppet is Naughty Crow. He is always so fresh to the kids and tends to go after the shiny jewelry worn by moms in the group. I hope he is on his best behavior today. He will introduce the theme and will do the Owl Pokey with us and will help me do the feltboard as well. I won't make him do yoga today though ;)

Children who start kindergarten ready to learn to read have greater success throughout their school years. They are more likely to read at or above grade level by the end of 2nd grade. Children who read at or above grade level by the end of 4th grade are much more likely to graduate from high school and be successful readers and learners throughout their lives.
