Baseball season starts in two weeks, and Ricki is preparing. She practices every day until the season begins. When she takes a break from baseball, Ricki and her friends retreat to the tree house to practice writing what they learn in school.
They focus on different parts of speech, and they are now learning about verbs. Using their baseball experiences, the friends write a variety of sentences and underline their verbs. Ricki writes: I practiced throwing the ball. I caught the ball. Dolly writes: Dolly catches missed balls. Panda bats at the balls on the ground. Ricki and her friends even create a fun game to help them learn their verbs.
An interactive, illustrated book for children, Ricki the Writer Writes Verbs in "Let's Play Ball" offers a fun way to learn about reading and writing.
Join Ricki in her tree house of fun with friends as you learn the parts of speech
