One of my favorite weeks at my children’s school is Read to me Week. They do all kinds of fun activities the whole week and have special guests come in and read to the children. In my oldest son’s class, they even had a special guest read to them over Skype from a different country. How cool is that? The kids get appearances from Mother Goose, news anchors and other fun characters and people throughout the whole week. The kids get to wear crazy socks one day, and mix-match outfits another, and the last day they all dress up like book characters. All the kids seem to really enjoy the week and it focuses on making reading fun. I love how the week uses all realms of learning from visuals to interactive storytelling. It is truly such a fun week with an academic focus!

This year my children chose characters Waldo and The Cat in The Hat and little brother got in on the action as Woody! I can’t wait until next year’s Read to me Week.
|What a Bunch of Characters!!!|
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
