  1. I think I'm not using the correct search terms, I'm sure one of you brilliant mom's has a list of good books to read aloud that go along with geography. We are reading Silver Skates, it is very lovingly describing the Netherlands. As we read it we are searching for more information on the county, people, culture etc. I'm looking for a list to tie to our geography study that I'm currently working on. My kids are 9, 12, 14. If you don't have a list but instead a good book recommendation please share! Thank you
  2. I'm looking for suggestions for great read aloud books for my second grade son. What have you loved to read with your kids?
  3. It's Read Aloud Thursday on my blog. Please come over and share your read-aloud blog posts from February if you're a blogger. If not, share what your family's read-alouds have been in a comment! http://www.hopeisthewordblog.com/2014/02/27/read-aloud-thursday-february-2014/
  4. My kids and I have been working through the Chronicles of Narnia using Roar and have loved it so much. My daughter dresses like a Narnian (especially Lucy) and my son talks about Aslan all the time. She's making a book right now about her heroes and most of them are Narnian characters. They are 11 and 8. So I don't know of many books that have that same quality of inspiring us to greater godliness, to great imagination and creativity, and wondered if you all know of any things that would fit this category of great children's literature. I don't mind Narnian magic, but I don't like dark
  5. What is your favorite fairy tale collection? I want to focus our read aloud time this summer on some classic fairy tales. I greatly prefer originals vs disneyfied versions and my boy (5) does ok with intensity and violence (we've read both the velveteen rabbit and hansel and gretel recently) but I own Grimms and honestly it's a bit "much" on the gore scale for me.
  6. we are going to london in december. my kids don't know much about it and i thought it would be fun to do a read aloud that was set in london that would be enjoyable for a ds9 and ds6. thanks!
  7. Just finished the Read Aloud Handbook. After all these years as a bookworm, I still had NO IDEA. I am just in stunned silence. Obviously have to order the newest edition to have and to hold until death do us part. My kids daily "diet" already got an overhaul after I finished the first couple of chapters. Does this book hit everyone this way?? Have I had my head under a rock all these years to not have known how HUGELY important this was? Gotta go get some ice cream and sit and digest it all. Tomorrow morning - hitting the library webpage to revamp my reserve list a little!
  8. my 4 boys that I can read all at one time - they range in age from 13 down to 6. Thanks!!
  9. I am just beginning this journey, so I openly admit I am not familiar with all the jargon. I keep seeing "Read Aloud". What is this and what is the purpose? Perhaps I know the concept by a different name......:confused:
  10. We have been listening to Librivox recordings of some of the classics, and I have been reading some aloud. We enjoy them as a family, and my boys both appreciate and understand them. Some part of me feels this is "cheating", that my older should be not only able but willing to read, let's say, Treasure Island, on his own. However, I have found that his comprehension is lower when he reads it to himself, and he gets bogged down in the old-fashioned language and challenging vocabulary, problems he tends not to have when the book is read to him. (This is partially because we stop every so often
  11. We read all sorts of stuff during the day, but our bedtime read-aloud needs to be light, sweet, and funny- nothing scary, sad, super exciting, or overly mentally taxing :tongue_smilie:. We've read a string of good ones lately- Wind in the Willows, Dr. Dolittle series, Mr. Popper's Penguins- and I'm looking for suggestions along those same lines. What say ye? :)
  12. I've always thought it was important to read aloud to my children, so since they were small, we've always had a book going. From picture books to chapter books to poetry, I read aloud something to them nearly every single day. So, why is it that they have the attention span of a gnat?! I just finished reading a fairly exciting chapter in If All the Swords in England and not one of my children could tell me a single thing about what happened. Nothing. They couldn't even remember whether the characters were in France or England. This is not the first time this has happened. I have the
  13. Hey everybody! My son is very young, but I love the idea of a classical cycle, as outlined in The Well-Trained Mind, and the idea that almost all reading aloud is powerful and good, as outlined in Jim Trelease's Read-Aloud Handbook, so I'm trying to incorporate a classical read-aloud cycle as part of my daily reading routine with the little one. I started out with Aesop's Fables (I used the Classic Illustrated edition edited by Cooper Edens because I loved the variety of illustration styles included in the book; I'll probably do Jerry Pinkney's version next time for variety, and because I
  14. ...I can't seem to find any thread on good read alouds for a first grader and 4 yo. Of course I think I've read a bunch when I didn't need any more choices.... Anyway, I need some good boy adventure type stories. Bonus if it has a good moral lesson, or sparks some good moral discussions... We've done: Mr. Popper's Penguins Mouse and the Motorcycle Stuart Little Charlotte's Web Little House books (3 of them I think but they are tired of them) Velveteen Rabbit Narnia books the first Boxcar children book What next?
  15. Hi everyone, We've completed our first two weeks of school here; I have three DSs (7, 4 and 2) and we're mainly concentrating on the 7 yr. old right now who spent the last two years in public school. We use the curriculum listed below and our general schedule goes like this: 7 a.m.-8 a.m.--kids get up, get ready for the day, do morning tidy-up chores 8 a.m.-8:30 a.m.--breakfast 8:30 a.m.-9:15 a.m.--Music practice time 9:15 a.m.-9:30 a.m.--Bible 9:30 a.m.-10:15 a.m.--Math 10:15 a.m.-10:45 a.m.--Break/read aloud 10:45 a.m.-11:30 a.m.--Language Arts (FLL/CW Primer,
  16. I love to use picture books to read aloud to my kindergarten daughter and my 2nd grade daughter. I love to teach them history, science, literature, fables, fairy tales etc... this way. What are your favorites? Not necessairily the ones you see posted all over, the lesser known favorites would be great! I am putting in requests at my library, and the more the better!!! Michelle
  17. I've been making a list of books for read alouds or for independent reading for my dc. My list starts with Kindergarten and goes up to 6th grade. I have three books on my list that were recommended somewhere, but I don't know what grade would be best. They're Charles Dickens' David Copperfield, The Old Curiosity Shop and Great Expectations. What age/grade do you think these would fit into best? Would they fit into different age groups as a read aloud vs. independent reading? (I know in general you can read aloud books to a younger child than would be able to read the book independen
  18. This is the first chapter book I've read aloud to my dc that at least one of them kept asking me to read more! I was pleasently surprised, she never wanted me to put it done. This has never happen before when I've read a chapter book. Any suggestions as to what to read next? I really would like something that would grab their attention and have them asking for more!
