What We're Reading

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

We go to the library about once a week and check out 12-15 books. The kids pick whatever they want and I usually choose a few to read to them. I started keeping the list for personal use and to have some way to track what we've covered since we aren't sticking to a curriculum. My library list is now three pages long. We have also visited several library book sales (love 'em!) and have accumulated a home library of almost 400 children's books. (If I were to be considered a collector, I suppose children's books are what I collect...along with the gum wrappers and crumpled coupons that accumulate in the bottom of my purse.)

In addition, we have read almost all of the books in the Five in a Row curriculum, which I highly recommend. We are currently reading a set of chapter books by Holling Clancy Holling, which are fantastic and lead into great discussions about all sorts of things (geography, animal species, travel, mapping, culture, illustration, etc., etc.) I was introduced to these wonderful books when Aiden received them for his sixth birthday, thanks Dad! If you come across them pick them up...you won't be disappointed. We are now finishing Paddle to the Sea. Both my 6 year old and almost 3 year old have loved them.
