Well, that's only half true. We took 2 weeks off of school then did the last week of PreK, took one more week off and now we are diving into Kindergarten! Why no summer? Because he's 4 and if we take to much time off it will be a HUGE battle getting back into the school routine. Plus he likes school for the most part, why stop?
So anyway, here we are in our first week of Kindergarten and I thought I would come and share our reading list for the year. Since the main focus this year is to teach JD to read, we are doing a lot more read-a-loud chapter books. Doing this should also help him pay attention more (here's hoping!!), sit still, and use his imagination. Good mommy and JD time too :)
This list will last us until Christmas Break. Goal is 1 chapter a day Mon-Sat.
*Little King Davie by Nellie Hellis (3 chapters left)
*Winne The Pooh (only 3 chapters left..been reading randomly for awhile now)
