Ricki the Writer
Writes Nouns in “The New Neighbor”
About the Book
This book makes learning fun with an interactive game to reinforce the skill taught
When Ricki’s friend Dolly moves next door, she goes over to help her unpack.
Soon, the two girls are playing together in Ricki’s tree house every Saturday. The tree house has lights, a working doorbell, and is red.
The two girls dress up like ballerinas and twirl around the tree house. They wear crowns and dance on their toes. They even play school and pretend to be their teacher, Mrs. Hall.
When they practice writing nouns: Ricki writes sentences, and Dolly underlines the nouns. Next, they play “Zap”—a game where you get one point for each right answer. If you get a stick that says “Zap,” you have to subtract one point.
When Dolly picks a stick that says “person,” she names a person they both know—Mrs. Hall—and she gets one point. When Ricki picks a stick that says “place,” she names the Pizza Palace in their hometown, and she gets a point.
Join Ricki and Dolly as they enjoy being kids and learning new things in this fun, illustrated story, which has nouns highlighted in blue font.
