(FYI: I periscope – @notbefore7 – every Saturday to share these books. You can find the one for this list here!)
So what did we read this week?
Non-fiction: reading a little each day:
(How They Croaked: The Awful Ends of the Awfully Famous is FANTASTIC. Interesting. Informative.)
Geography: Antarctica Focus:
Our read-aloud chapter books:
(We just started, Courage Has No Color, and it is FANTASTIC. All four of my kids are enjoying the book and it has been a platform for some excellent discussions)
Vocabulary: reviewing and adding a few words each week:
(Both of these poetry books are fantastic. I found them at the library, but have added both to my amazon wish list. You can view my periscope to learn more.)
For Fun and learning – winter theme:
Toys Meet Snow is a picture book based on the characters from the Toys Go Out series. Toys Go Out, Toy Dance Party, and Toys Come Home are hysterically funny stories with delightful characters. The reading level has makes them perfect for kids entering the stage of chapter book reading.
For fun and learning:
Books the Kids read on Their Own:
(The GameKnight999 series is based on a character in minecraft. I can not speak to the content or writing, but the reluctant reader in this house has read them over and over. She doesn’t put them down.)
A little fairy tale viewing: Draw Me a Story, season 2 (Draw Me a Story – free on amazon prime)
Have a great weekend!
