The words and the language of Shakespeare’s plays can be intimidating for kids, and let’s face it, most adults as well.
Do not let that stop you from tackling this subject with your younger students. They can learn to appreciate, enjoy, and perhaps even fall in love with the world of Shakespeare.
And you can right along with them!
Haiku is a well known and beautiful form of poetry to read and write. Start exploring Haiku with your kids by reading great examples from a variety of sources.
I have plenty of inspiration to get you started.
Who doesn’t love to cozy up on the sofa with a good picture book?
And this chilly winter season makes a cozy reading moment even more precious.
So grab your hot cocoa, some fuzzy blankets, and your babies because I’ve got a list of 100 winter-themed picture books for you to read.
I am not one of those moms who can’t get rid of books. I am a purger. And I have no problem purging books.
The way I see it, that is what libraries are for. Libraries house my books.
But even I have my soft spots and my memories, so I must admit that there is a section of our hallway bookcase that is more than just a shelf of books.
It is a collection of memories that will always be exempt from purging.
Want to take your average book club discussion and add some memorable flair?
Toss in some themed food, fun decor, and crazy games. Everyone is sure to have a book club experience they’ll remember.
After three years of book clubs for my kids, I’ve got you covered with ideas!
The summer is coming and reading by the pool is a high priority on my agenda. I love to sit poolside with an iced tea (of course) while reading a good book.
In the spirit of the summer season, I decided to organize my reading list. Because it is so huge and I need to record it all in one place.
Will I actually read all of these books before 2017 ends?
Perhaps. But maybe not.
And that is okay with me because I’ll just put the remaining titles on a list for 2018.
Without further ado, this is “Mary’s Completely Ridiculous Amount of Books to Read Booklist” otherwise known as the “2017 Booklist”
