I know kids are supposed to be reading in the summer. And we even signed them up for the summer reading program, and I put it on their list of chores every morning. But these girls here at home are not readers this summer.
I don’t know what I can do about that. Change the wifi password every day? Rewards? (The library program isn’t helping this year.) I lead by example: I read for a good hour or so every evening (when they’re not bugging me). But the lure of the tablets and the TV and the computer is just too strong around here (and it doesn’t help that I’m gone for 7 hours three days a week).
M did text me that she read and really loved this:
And K and Hubby are about halfway through reading this (which K complains is often boring, but is still sticking with it):
But that’s about all that’s being read.
How do you manage summer reading so that it actually gets done?
