Reading Room

Mason's elementary school is focused on reading. Each child is given a goal of reading 200 minutes per month (for kindergarteners, being read to counts). Each night, we do our 'homework' and read for at least 10 minutes. Mason has always enjoyed books (he gets that from his dad) and likes to read (I would use 'read' in quotes, but he is really starting to sound out words and sentences) during his quiet time.

Motivated by a suggestion from Mason's teacher in her monthly newsletter, we decided to set up a special 'reading room' for Mason so he can enjoy his books. Complete with a book shelf, a map of the U.S. and Christmas lights, he now has a special place where he can relax and read.

AWESOME idea!! We are always on the reading calendar. At Pre-K, it's ALL me doing the reading.
