Ultimate Staycation Plans

It’s summertime. The kids are on vacation from school. And even if you are homeschooling year-round, the kids’ activities are over.

But how do you get the kids excited about reading when they are still struggling through the beginning stages? Or if they aren't old enough to read yet? You can have a family read-aloud challenge!   When Reading Is Not Intentional I, personally, LOVE to read. You can ask my family and friends (and even ex-classmates at school). I have always had a book around. In fact, I'm even participating in a Back to the Classics reading challenge for...Read More
