I've spent so much time this past week re-planning a lot of our school life, and I do have a couple of kids who are back to using Sonlight. For Connor, that doesn't impact this post as he is pretty independent. For Richard and Trina, however, this means that I'll have Sonlight Read-Alouds to start listing for them.
I am continuing to read 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. We are loving this. The plan is to finish this up by the time their Sonlight materials arrive in the house!
I am still reading Poppy by Avi to Richard and Trina. Also part of a Moving Beyond the Page study. We are working on this at a bit slower pace now.
We are doing Tower of Babel by Bodie Hodge as a family read-aloud. Review coming soon. Hopefully this week. I love this book.
Richard and Trina are listening to Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren. Mostly, this started so that I could get some sleep when I was feeling horrible. The problem with that plan is that I adored this book as a child, and I haven't read it since I was about their age. So I don't want to miss any of it, and I'm not getting my nap in. Gotta figure out an audiobook that I don't care if I get to listen to or not.
Charlotte's Web is our first Sonlight Read-Aloud. We started that yesterday. I absolutely love having a schedule. It means I don't have to keep reading just because the kids ask me to. I can read the scheduled chapter (or chapters) and feel totally okay with being done. We'll undoubtedly get ahead on the readings still. But I love knowing I've done enough.
We're doing the Christian Heroes for Young Readers series from YWAM instead of the missionary book that Sonlight schedules. So today (since I'm posting late!) we read William Carey.

How about you? What are you reading out loud? Have you made any changes in your routines now that Spring has Sprung?
