This is flex week part two in school, so we are getting caught up in things like reading and other activities.
This past Saturday we went to the library and the kids checked out books and books on CD. When we got home B sat down and started reading his Curious George books. C went to her room and started listening to the Boxcar Children. After we had lunch B wanted to listen the Boxcar Children CD he checked out, so B, C, and my husband spent the afternoon listening to the CD. I think they had a lot of fun.
The past two terms we have been reading Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s The Song of Hiawatha and we are really enjoying it.
We are still reading Carry on Mr. Bowditch while we are working on our handwriting. I am so please with the quality and quantity of handwriting that has been done.
One fun little book we are reading this week is The Adventures of Jerry Muskrat by Thornton Burgess. The children are enjoying this book. I was glad I could find it for free on the Kindle. I’m not sure the local library would have it.
We are also reading Polar Bears Past Bedtime by Mary Pope Osborne.
This was our week of reading. What did you read this week to your children?
