This week, I'm answering some questions about reading out loud:
- What is our reading out loud process?
- Should we have a time (for reading) built into the flow (of our day)?
- What if this time crowds out other projects our children are working on individually?
- How do we choose books?
I talk about
- Why I never enjoyed listening to books being read aloud as a child
- How I used to regard reading out loud as the dessert of my kids' education rather than the main course.
- How we should move over and let our kids occupy the reader's chair
- How we have to be patient while our kids are learning how to read out loud
- My reading-out-loud experiment: What happened when I stopped correcting my daughter when she made reading-out-loud mistakes
I also return to the topic of Christmas presents:
- Do presents belong only to the commercial side of Christmas or do they have spiritual significance?
- Can we tell others to be generous?
- Or do we only learn about generosity by experiencing it ourselves?
