Reading Aloud Challenge: Just Do It


I just can't seem to get this post written today.  I'm having a very crazy, mixed-up week.  Just do it.

We are almost caught up in The American Patriot's Almanac by William Bennett. Essentially, we read about 1.5 weeks worth, so we are behind a bit.  Lots of great stuff in there, and we still love the book.

The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien.  We finished chapter 2.  And had to return it. 

I am reading Albert Einstein by Kathleen Krull and Investigating Rocks by Will Hurd, as part of the Moving Beyond the Page units that I am doing with William and Thomas. 

I am reading Poppy by Avi to Richard and Trina.  Also part of a Moving Beyond the Page study.  We'll be reading some other books too, but haven't started them yet.

We started Tower of Babel by Bodie Hodge as a family read-aloud.  Review coming soon.  Amazing book.  We're barely into it, but I've scanned ahead.

I have some other things planned, but nothing started.  And no photo.  I'm going to try to get a photo up later.

How about you?  What are you reading out loud?  I am desperate for some inspiration, so feel free to link up your posts about reading aloud, or leave me a comment and tell me I can do it... This week, I am going to visit and comment on everyone who links up.  I usually do that, but messed up this past week.  I did visit everyone though.

These books sound interesting.

Reading aloud is such a huge part of our daily homeschooling life. I think we will still be reading aloud even up to a senior in high school.
