A few days ago I realized that that kind of reading hasn't happened in a long time. Mister and Ladybug love to read and we read as a family before rest and bed, but I haven't "caught" them reading in what feels like forever. I want to bring a strong focus back to reading for enjoyment, so we are starting our own little D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read) program our family's first goal for 2012.
|I planned on reading for about 15 minutes, but it lasted almost 45 minutes. Each child read independently and took turns sitting in my lap with a book of his or her choice.|
