Reading Hour

Summer is now here, the kids are out and we have a few weeks until Daddy finishes and we can take a vacation. So what to do to keep the kids busy and not the TV or Computer.
Ok I will admit that they do use both but I also do other things.

We have a reading hour everyday. The older kids either read a chapter book or they can read books to the little ones. I also use this time to do reading lessons with the ones that can't read or are beginner readers. I love the book, How to teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons. If you decide to use it I would strongly recommend having it spiral bound first. I am on my second copy and need to get a new one.

Can't beat reading. Congratulations. I hope their reading will help them enjoy life as they grow up.

We have this book too! It was our main reading program last year for both the kids (K and 1st grade). It worked nicely for my oldest in helping to bridge into comprehension.
