Notes from Storytime

Froodle Sproodle

FroodleDo you ever make up nonsense words? The book Froodle by Antoinette Portis has tons of them! After you read the bird’s silly words in the story, play a game to make up some of your own! Phonological awareness involves understanding that words are made up of smaller sounds. When they have this skill, children are able to think about how words sound, separate from what they mean.
