Summer days are very long and here they are very hot so this summer we had a reading hour--that's right a WHOLE hour everyday. Well not exactly a whole hour of reading; we would read together for 30 minutes then they had the option to read, write, color or nap for the next 30 minutes.
Everyday they got to chose one of my hats and we would wear them while we read.
It was a good break in the day--and usually a much needed break. We were able to read Alice in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I really enjoyed it, N enjoyed it, L could only handle reading one page and then struggled having to pay attention while N read.
