Reading! It’s how we are spending our summer. My kids are in the public library reading programs, a nearby church reading program, and a book club at our church. We try to get out and do things whenever an opportunity arises, but when we are home we attempt to do some math and a ton of reading! We do read all year of course, but we devote out summers to reading. Academically it is great for them, but we read for fun. The kids get to choose books they are interested in over the summer (with my direction and approval of course) and not just the books I assign, but I love the incentives that the public libraries close to us offer.
So our plan is to read, read, read and then take the kids to use all of their free coupons! Last week we turned in our reading log to one library and have already been reaping the benefits:
We have lots more places to visit with our coupons yet–so fun! Do you and your kids participate in the summer reading programs?
