Read Aloud Challenge 5/26
I’ve had such a busy May that it should not surprise me that it is the end of the month already but it does. Time rocketed by me during May and I missed posting last week about the Reading Aloud Challenge.
Not only have we NOT finished any of the books I’ve posted about, but for most of them we’ve not even made any progress. Despite my desire to make reading aloud a priority in our lives, this month I’ve really struggled. I decided to give myself permission to relax about the reading aloud and encourage the girls with their independent reading. I also decided to spend some time reading for me. There are benefits to having your children see YOU reading for pleasure.
And it’s not that I haven’t read aloud, it’s that I wasn’t reading aloud our literature choices. Ok I haven’t read aloud to BooBear or Turtlegirl but I have been reading aloud history/social studies to Tailorbear and Supergirl along with some science.
