I hope everyone is doing well ! Is anyone else on Spring break ? My kids are just finishing up their spring break, it seems like they enjoyed it even though we did not plan a trip or vacation. We still stayed busy and had a lot of fun. 😁
I wanted to come on and share more books that I have found for my youngest son ( he is 9 years old). His reading level has gone up significantly, so I am super proud of him & want to keep him interested and happy to read. I took him to pick out some newer books and also bought him some for Easter as a part of his Easter gift.
The Scary Stories to tell in the dark are a very old series from 1981; https://shopstyle.it/l/btqLx Who else can remember these? I loved them growing up & was so excited to see it being created into a movie, it came out a few years ago and to tell you the truth I am super sad I still haven’t seen it!! Being a HUGE horror movie fan I’m super upset with myself, lol but this blog isn’t about that so lets move on… I bought these for my son since he asked for them for his birthday last year and he has finished two of them, so he only has the 3rd one to finish. They seemed scarier than I remember so I was a little scared he would have bad dreams, but he was fine and he really has enjoyed them so far.
He ended up picking out a few Who is? / What was? books ( I really love these books for kids ) he chose What is the Story of Frankenstein? https://shopstyle.it/l/btqMW he personally didn’t like it as much as he thought he would, so I wouldn’t highly recommend that one, but I still wanted to share it. He really enjoyed the What is the Civil rights movement? book; https://shopstyle.it/l/btqMW he is so interested in that era. He also has so many Martin Luther King books he likes history which is awesome👍🏽
The new ones we just picked up for Easter are:
Who was John F Kennedy? https://shopstyle.it/l/btqMH , he started this one and so far really likes it a lot.
I know it can be hard to get children to read, I try to have him read 20-30 minutes a day Monday to Thursday. Sometimes longer and sometimes an extra day it really depends, I always have him read out loud. I think its super important so that if there is a word he doesn’t understand I can explain it to him and help him sound it out or say it correctly. I don’t want him to just be reading but to also understand. Also try to ask them about what they read to make sure they are remembering what they are reading. I think once you have them on a schedule and keep going they get used to it & they end up liking it more especially if they are reading books that interest them.
Thanks for reading! Also if your not already follow me on Instagram.😉
