Reading For Kids
We read a lot. Out loud. Alone. Audiobooks. You name it, we read it. Reading is important. Following are posts about all things reading and kids. I've also included some posts about to teach or not to teach reading.
"How will you teach them to read?"
That question was innocently asked of me many times when I first started homeschooling my children, and I must admit I wondered how I would teach them to read, too.
I want to expose my children to as many classics as possible before they leave our home, but I have a confession to make:
So many of the classics have always seemed difficult and unapproachable.
Does anyone agree with me? Listening to classics on audio, however, changed my mind about that.
Thank you, Jeff Kinney!
Thank you for making reading FUN. Thank you for inspiring writing. Thank you for bringing my children together. Thank you for making them laugh. Thank you for giving parents an insight into the brains of children, and thank you for not making us take ourselves so seriously.
