Ms. Maresa's Where the Wild Things Are

Welcome to Ms. Maresa’s, Where the Wild things are!

I’m thrilled to share some of my favorite childhood storybooks that I’ve grown to love. I’ll be reading stories, singing songs, and providing fun literacy activities that you can do in your own home! Each week I will be posting videos and pdf activities that you will have free access to. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” By Dr. Seuss.

Parents & Tots Book Club

Introducing our Online Book Club!

Join fellow parents on a journey of discovery as we read children’s books that carry valuable life lessons. Together, we’ll explore stories that align with important behaviors and morals, empowering you to bring positive values home. Dive into discussions, gain insights, and uncover creative ways to nurture these lessons in your family’s daily life.
