The last two days, we have been having a Read-A-Thon. With November so full of vacations and family, we got behind in our read alouds. So, I decided we would have a few days of catching up.
I read for an hour, then we took a break for an hour for lunch, snack, chores, etc. and then got back to reading for another hour. We did this throughout the day. I think we might have gotten in about 3 1/2-4 hours.
We had a lot to catch up on in Albraham Lincoln’s World, plus we recapped on what we read and discussed some. After we got to where I wanted us to be, we began Abandoned on the Wild Frontier.
We enjoyed this very much that I think we will make Read-A-Thons part of our routine, maybe every 3 months or so.
How fun! I would have loved a read-a-thon when I was in school. I remember loving the 15 min after lunch reading time our teacher did in 5th grade. That was how I was introduced to The Chronicles of Narnia 🙂
