Every morning we start our school day with Reading Time. The children usually like to gather up their pillows and blankets and we all sit in a circle on the floor. We start out reading our Bible story, then practice our memory verse for the week. Next we read one for the little one's. I am reading Dr. Suess right now and everyone (even Chelsea ) still enjoys his books. We also read something about animals for Science. They like to read about snakes, whales, dolphins, spiders etc.. Then Nick has his opportunity to read to me. We wait until after lunch to do Chelsea's read aloud because the little ones don't have that long of an attention span. Reading is a great way to start the day.
