Getting the Right Start Activity Sheets

The activities for these popular picture books were created for IRW's Getting the Right Start initiative, a book-centered program for pre-K kids. Using the Whole Book Approach and Visual Thinking Strategies, these activities are designed to stretch imaginations, strengthen language development, observational skills and most importantly, to encourage fun with picture books!
