Reading time, is one of my favorite times of the day. Either the kids or I would pick a book for me to read. Just today we read, Don't Let the Pigeon drive the bus by Mo Willems, which the kids really enjoyed. A new thing we're trying this year, Once or twice a week, group three which is the older kids will read a book to the younger kids in group one. Then the younger kids will read a book to the older kids. Today was our first day trying it, it was very successful. We had a kid from group three pair up with a kid from group one and read a book of there choice. The older kids were great role models for the younger kids and the younger kids were very respectful to the older kids when they were reading. afterward the kids from each group would discuss what happened in the book and what they liked and disliked about it.
Go to srmaryschildren.tumblr.com to see pictures of the young and old children reading together (as well as lots of other photos of camp activites). We will be posting plenty of camp photos there.
