Are you halfway (or more) through summer and realizing now you haven’t been as on top of that “Summer Reading” with your kiddos as you hoped you would be??? Have they even started their Summer Packets yet? No worries, even if you only have a couple weeks left you have plenty of time
As children are learning to read it’s so important that they are reading the right books. I’ve shared my favorite books that I’ve used in my classroom and in my home to support children as they learn how to read.
Reading with your Preschooler is such an important activity because it builds their love of Reading. I’ve shared some of my families favorite books that my kiddos started enjoying when they were in preschool (and sometimes even earlier)
Summer Slide is definitely not a slide you want your child to be on this summer! The Summer Slide is a regression in skills (particularly reading) that takes place during the summer months when students aren’t in school. I’ve included my best tips on how to beat the Summer Slide.
Who worries that their kid is watching too much tv?
Or playing too many video games everyday?
So many of us struggle with this, because while it’s okay let them watch tv, play video games, or play on the ipad sometimes, we all know too much is not good.

Find a great website or app that is reinforcing learning, that they also LOVE!!!
Developing good reading habits is so important for children. Whether they are still in diapers or heading off to middle school it’s never too early or too late to develop these habits.
So as a Mom with a house full of books and a Reading Teacher with classroom full of books, I often get the question, where do I get all these books, and how can I afford all them??? So let me tell you, it’s not shopping at the bookstore on my teacher’s salary that’s for sure!
How often do your children see you reading a book?

But do they ever see the adults in their life reading for enjoyment?
