Teaching My Baby To Read

Gearing up for Summer

Last year we did A STEM Summer and had a blast.  This year I’m planning on doing the Activity Guide from Story of the World Volume 3.  Other ideas are for percolating as well…

I was shopping at JoAnn’s Fabric yesterday and saw that all of their teacher’s supplies were on clearance.  Even though I’m not a teacher any more, is was really hard not too go nuts.  Especially since almost everything was under a dollar.

It got me thinking some more about summer.

This reading poster is one of the things I am really excited about.  It’s hard to tell from the picture, but it includes pictures about genres.  Then I got 100 die-cut books to with it.  So every book my son reads this summer, can be proudly displayed under the corresponding genre.  That will be really motivating for him, plus it will let us know “the big picture” of whether or not he’s reading in a balanced way.  If he’s not, that’s okay too.  It’s just useful to be mindful.

Another thing I found (not pictured) was a US Presidents bulletin board kit, also for super cheap.  So I picked that up too.  Maybe I can do something with presidents and books I pick up at the library.  (I’m still not sure.)

But what I do know, is that I’m excited by the possibilities!
