One of our main goals this year is for everyone to become a good reader. One way we are going about this task is to saturate the children in reading materials ~ from games to Leap Pads to good old phonics lessons. Our dear one-on-one mental health worker for Goldilocks blessed us with 10 Leap Pad books and cartridges this past week. We already had three Leap Pads and a few books that I had found at yard sales through the years. The kids are in heaven with all the new books and are asking constantly if they can go work with a Leap Pad.
They are doing a really nice job of playing the games and sounding out the words instead of letting the machine do all the work.
I am also busy making file folder games. They are just right for Tom Sawyer, and the girls can do some of the easier ones.
While I am writing this, I glanced across the room to see this adorable view. It warms my heart.
Blessings and happy reading!
