Homeschooling Outside the Box

Oct 19, 2021

So far in this “Homeschool Rhythms” series we’ve talked about morning timenarrationgetting readygroup work, and individual work. We’ve moved our way through morning activities and today we’re going to talk about reading aloud!

I want to talk to you today about making read-aloud time a family activity for all time – no matter what your child’s age. This is a beautiful part of the day that can be a little more laid back and relaxing and there are a few different ways you can make it happen.

I don’t think many people would argue about the value of reading great literature together but it can easily become something that slips from an overbusy schedule.

Reading aloud to your children helps them build vocabulary, creates a bridge for struggling readers, and most importantly creates a shared experience for your family making it a great tool for strengthening relationships. I encourage you to enjoy this nurturing time with your whole family and make it a priority in homeschool.

Join me today as I show you how read-aloud time can fit in your day.
