I know you’ve seen them.
The studies that show over and over again that reading with our kids is a really, really big deal. It informs so much about them and their future success, not only in school, but life.
And, if I am most honest, I have struggled – really, really struggled – with making reading aloud something we do, without meltdowns or angst.
Join me today at Simple Homeschool as I confess my read aloud slacker failures. Join me as I discuss the reality of reading aloud with a profoundly dyslexic child, and his brother with high functioning autism.
Join me as I share how we are figuring it out and making it work for our family.
If you are looking for more resources – I would encourage you to check out The Read Aloud Revival Podcast. I was skeptical at first (please see all my slacker confessions and you will understand why!). But I have to admit, this girl is awesome. She is enthusiastic and has tons of ideas that are actually doable. And, this month, she is hosting a 31 day read aloud challenge for kids and parents alike. To sweeten the pot, our children have the chance to win $400. in prizes for reading throughout the month of January. Click here for more details.
