Today is National Read Across America day. I am posting what books I'm currently reading.
Slow and Steady Get Me Ready, has week to week activities to do with your children from birth to Kindergarten. Yes, every single week! It is AWESOME.
As paraphrased and recommended from another book I've read,
"Combine this with plenty of physical activity and you have an excellent preschool."
So, even though I read one page a week per child under five, I've been looking ahead for any preparations.
I just started reading Teaching your Children Values. My sister, Rachel, highly recommends it. The values I'm especially looking forward to learning how to teach are: being a good sport and having integrity. I'm sure all the others are important as well, but we need a boost with these two lately.
Ahh, this book, I didn't plan to be Witch, also by the same author as Teaching Your Children Values has me bursting out laughing at times. It's an easy read that I can just pick up for a few minutes here or there.
The Sensory-Sensitive Child, I just started reading as well, was recommended by Pookie's Occupational Therapist. We've been evaluating Pookie for some time now and it appears he has a Sensory Processing Disorder. This book is helping me understand the way thinks and acts. It's also teaching me how to understand Hammy.
I love this book. Whenever I'm discouraged or lost when it comes to homeschooling, I pick it up and am reinforced in my decision and backed up with recommendations and resources.
In addition to scriptures, that is my personal reading this week.
What are you reading? Do you prefer novels? How-to books? Non-fiction? Biographies? Any great books you want to tell me about?
Also, do you have something you've read that you can recommend to me about what I can do with twin toddlers when the Sensory-Sensitive 9 year old and Gremlin 3 year olds have made a choking hazard mess and the only way to confine the twins are in high chairs or car seats? If so, PLEASE TELL ME.
