plain jane Posted February 28, 2012 Share Posted February 28, 2012 I hate to say it but I'm not the best mom and things are falling through the cracks here. :( By the time I get through the 3Rs with my 5th, 2nd, and K'er, have activities for the preschooler and keep the baby out of trouble, I'm lucky if we're done (the basics) by lunch. Then, of course, there's clean up and nap times and the afternoon of history and science studies. My days are so full and busy and I just now realized that I've dropped the ball on having my 2nd grader read. :001_huh: I mean, she reads when we have a specific book for history that I want her to read (which is usually at least one per week, but this depends on library availability) but she doesn't ever up and read a book. Oh, she also does CLE Reading but that's not reading every day as there's also a fair amount of workbook/writing work. She *can* read and she says she enjoys it but says that she never thinks of it. She's definitely not getting in the 1-1/2 hours of reading time that WTM recommends. :blush: I'm not even sure how to fit it all in. :001_huh: I have 1/2 hour fitted in during the day but somehow, some days that seems to get overlooked and taken over by history time (me reading to them) or something else- usually distracted by younger siblings. :glare: So, how do I motivate her to read more and get more reading into her day? I need more hours. :glare: At any rate- rewards? stickers? candy? what's worked for you? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
