Day 1: Read, Read, Read
Today, we read fall books to prepare for the week ahead.
For us, choosing books off of https://www.getepic.com/ has been a life saver. I downloaded the app. . . And, ahead of time, I chose fall books on each kid’s reading level. Then, they read them at their own pace, while I’m working with another kid on something else.
Then, we review one of the books together, hit on the main points, and answer some comprehension questions. I also love that the books on Epic has quizzes, so I can use that as well for comprehension checks.
Epic works best for us, because we have a small space. . . and there are a ton of digital books. I pay one monthly fee for all 3 kids, and don’t have to pay per book!!
Once they read one book, other suggestions come up. I love this, because they can keep reading to extend their learning. And repetition is important.
We will continue reading the same fall books all week, and they will have the option to choose new ones.
Another great idea is to hit up your local library. Same concept applies. Re-read and re-visit the same books throughout the week.
