So, I have this master plan for reading to my kiddos each day this summer. Today is Day 1. I will let you know how this works out. I have one nugget entering 1st and the other 4th. I debated if I should select a story that I could read to both of them. Given the age and gender difference and general propensity to choose the opposite from each other out of shear ability, I decided that I would make this a little one on one time. If the other wants to listen in, bonus!!! So, I am going to start a list of my reads. I want this to be something that is just fun. I am not going to be pointing out words, highlighting phonemic awareness or talking about sentence structure. The purpose of this is to get my kiddos loving and exploring new worlds in a manor that does not involve a screen (ie. our beloved Minecraft and Roblox).
I will let you know how this little project unfolds..... As I read these picks, I will follow up with how my nuggets and I enjoyed them. Here's hoping I make it to Day 5! Wish me luck!!!!

I'm Rachel Myers, a mom of 2, married to my college guy, former Corporate America gal that stayed home with the kiddos, and now am a preK teacher. This is my little spot to reflect and make it through my journey. Sometimes I lean on Christ and sometimes I forget. Along the way, I love finding inspiration from others, spreading the good in people and finding the joy in God !
