English Parent Reading Guide

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Ranger Rick Jr April 2018Every Ranger Rick Jr. is chock-full of interesting information about animals. After you explore the fun animal facts, use the magazine to give your child practice with sorting objects and recognizing shapes.

Sorting Objects

  • Turn to “Feathered Friends” on page 6. This article introduces children to the world of birds and helps them understand that not all birds are alike. Birds, like many things, can be sorted into categories based on their shared characteristics. After reading the article, show your child the illustration on pages 12–13. Ask her to sort the birds in the picture into the categories found in the article.
  • Extend the sorting activity by asking your child to sort objects in your home, such as spare change, silverware, or articles of clothing.
