None of the Flashlight Readers on Scholastic are specifically that young, but it depends on your reader. Charlotte's Web and Winn Dixie might work well as read-with books if they have a willing parent or sibling. You might want to check out Storia too... it is an app from Scholastic that comes with 5 free books. Kids can highlight, circle, bookmark, watch little mini movies, etc. It is really engaging and you can get the level books that suit you. Think about Flat Stanley or Magic School Bus as well. To make these ideas, I just took the novel and thought of some kind of related science, math, art, engineering, and technology idea that kids could do at home. Pinterest can be your best friend for that kind of thing. Read, Write, Think, Thinkfinity.org, or the Student Activities link (see the top links on this page) are all great places for kids to "play" too.
