Welcome back to another edition of Mom’s Library! I’m so happy to see you again. Please come in, I’ll put on a cup of tea and we can get to know each other better! Have you used any of the ideas from last week’s Family Fun round up? We enjoyed watching a movie together last night, and today we’ve been out in the sun doing some yard-work…ok, I’ll admit, it was mostly Phil and the kids. But I plan on re-varnishing our outdoor bench this week, so that will count!
This is the last week of the Mythical Maze reading challenge that is going on right across the United Kingdom. Both of my children have met their reading goals over the summer and have certificates on the wall and medals they love wearing. I’m just finishing off my 6th novel of the summer and we’ll return it to the library this week. Much to the kids’ chagrin, I may be too old to receive a medal and certificate, but they have promised that they will design me my very own certificate! I love my children so much, and I’m so glad that they are both developing a love of reading themselves. It can be difficult to teach a child to read, but we learned when we were young, so we know it’s possible! Each child will learn at their own pace. For this week’s Mom’s Library round-up I’m featuring tips for early literacy.
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured Family Fun. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
