Now that school is in full swing we are reading aloud a lot more.
I am having C read to me every day for twenty minutes. She is currently reading Princess Posey and the Tiny Treasure, by Stephanie Greene, and illustrated by, Stephanie Roth Sisson. It is about a young girl, Posey, who gets a tiny stuffed pig who clips on her finger. She takes it to school, where her teacher has to take it away, because of the consequences rule. There are other books in the series. I am excited to find this series, because it is the first set of chapter books that C can easily read.
C has also been listening to CDs in her room. She has been listening to On the Banks of Plum Creek. I don’t think B is listening to anything in his room right now. The three of us are listening to Anne of Avonlea by L. M. Montgomery. I wanted a good book to listen to while we eat instead of always watching television. If anyone has any ideas of good books with boys as the main characters, I would enjoy the suggestions.
For science we are reading Galen and the Gateway to Medicine, by Jeanne Bendick. He was a medical researcher who was born in 129 A.D. His works and writings were the standard of authority for the next 1300 years.
For fun we are reading Diary of a Real Payne Book 1: True Story, by Annie Tipton. This book has the children begging for more. The review will be coming between October 18-25, so tune in then.
We have been reading aloud more since we started school. I hope you have been enjoying reading to each other. Have a wonderful week.
