I think it’s so important to make reading a part of your child’s daily routine. We have all sorts of rituals in our house from reading corner, reading minutes and car reading but the most exciting thing is the reading challenges that the girls’ elementary school come up with. Gotta Love A.S.K.
This season our amazing librarian sends this………..
Needless to say Jennah and Zeenah are more motivated than ever.
This year I’ve made it a point to make weekly visits to the library with Zeenah to choose books with her. Now that she can read more on her own I’ve made a rule that she has to choose books that she can at least read 3-4 words in sentence. I found it helps strengthen what she already knows and ease her into newer vocabulary without getting frustrated.
I highly recommend ordering it from Amazon, you’ll probably enjoy it a little more than your kids.
Off course you can always alternate reading time with Good night Moon if you have a love for the classic as I do.
On the other hand I have my more independent reader Jennah. I don’t need to accompany her to the library anymore and she has made good choices of books. Some that she is totally engrossed in from the first page and others that she seems to force herself to finish because she doesn’t want to miss out if the book gets better halfway through.
Her ultimate favorite series these days is The land of stories by Chris Colfer. I must say she’s continuously talking about it to everyone she meets and urges them to read. July 2016 can’t come any sooner for her to get her hands on book 5!
I think every once in a while i’d probably post what my kids are reading because I never know who might benefit in getting ideas.
After all it’s also Making Life Memorable for everyone!
