I caught it...the flu bug. I have been under the weather all weekend, but my Hubby and my children have been taking care of me...I'm so lucky! Hopefully this will go away soon and life will be back to normal- I think I am hallucinating though...
My children are looking for bonus points, not only did they clean the toy room, play nicely together- full of giggles, offer me food and drinks every other minute- Lolo wanted to be my server, but they did their sight words...ALL OF THEM!! I bought this set of post it notes with sight words on them- back to school sale- I am too cheap to actually buy post it's already written on, that makes no sense, but they were only like 20 cents, so I splurged and bought them for her. Molly sat and wrote ALL of these words, handed the paper to Lolo who was in charge of hanging them ALL on the wall. We have recently switched their rooms all around, so Molly and Lolo are in a room together and it is not finished, the walls need spackling and paint, and the whole place needs more organization. Well, the girls took action and "made" a headboard...out of stick it notes. I am so proud of them, it was a lot of work and although it looks like a mosaic of paper to me, it is art to them, it shows me they are thinking, they are learning and they are liking it. My question for everyone is... what are some of the things you do/did with your children to encourage good reading habits?
