It's been a good week with reading aloud... mostly not because we are actually doing much, but because I've run across so many great things about the value of doing it, and I am just encouraged. Even in my bad weeks, we are still reading aloud some. And that means that my kids are benefiting. And we just love it.
And then there is the chance to go visit the people who link here. Wow, some amazing people, reading great stuff. Thanks for sharing it with me!
So this week...
working through our summer science. Living Fossils. The review on this IS happening in the next week.
An Inter-Library Loan came in -- Augusting Came to Kent. We've barely moved past starting it. It is a long ILL, so we don't have to rush, but we do need to make more progress.
continuing to read If Animals
Could Talk. This turned into a read it to everyone book, and it is fun.
We're getting close to the end, and should have finished it this past week. I am finishing today, I am, I am, I am.
the World. Thomas is doing this for the Master Books program, and he is
enjoying it. What a cool book -- and it includes countries/languages
that just don't make the list in most books of this sort. Lithuania is
my personal favorite. We'll be finishing this up really soon too.
Exploring the World Around You is another one I've been reading with William for the Master Books program, and I've totally forgotten to mention it. This one is going to need some concerted effort though... we are not very far into it, and the program ends Sunday. If we can do a couple chapters a day for the rest of this month, we will get through it. Wish us luck.
Plans for this coming week? Finishing up all of the above. More Red Rock
Mysteries -- we did check three out from the library, but they are still in the bag!
