Today is National Young Readers Day. It is "set aside as a special day to recognize the joys and benefits of reading". It is celebrated in schools across the country but it begins at home with you! As mentioned in yesterday's post, as a teacher who is now a mom, I make mandatory D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) times of at least 30 minutes a day with my boys! It is such an easy thing we can do that will benefit our kids throughout their lives!
Your homework this week is to write some reading goals for you and your kids. If you already read with them daily, that is awesome, keep up the great work! If not, think about ways you can incorporate more reading into your schedules, maybe a quickie after naptime or family read-ins every evening before bed. Get creative, your kids (and their future teachers :-) ) will thank you one day! Once you set some goals, drop me a comment and share them with me, I would love to hear what you come up with!
And just for fun, hop on over to yesterday's post and join the link up. It will be open until Sunday night!
