There’s just a week and a half until school starts back. I’ve been really trying for the past few weeks to integrate some new organization systems into our family in hopes that this new school year will go a little smoother. With a new baby in the way, we need all the organization we can get.
When we haven’t been cleaning and reorganizing our home, we’ve spent the summer reading great literature and practicing math skills. My son hasn’t been all that excited about pages and pages of math work, but when it comes to reading, I can’t get him to do much of anything else. He absolutely loves reading and will get so involved in a book, he doesn’t want to do anything!
Not that I’m complaining though, I love that he gets completely infatuated with books. We’ve always hoped we could give him a love of reading early on that would last him his lifetime. He’s 10 now and because we spent his early years reinforcing reading habits, it’s really paid off. He loves to read and we love to help him pick out new reads as well as old classics.
We love to pick up children’s books at used book stores, thrift stores and yard sales. It’s easy to keep a large library of fun children’s books when you buy used. And then when the kids grow out of the books, we just donate them to our school or a local charity so someone else can enjoy them too!
We read a short book every night to our 3 year old daughter, the same way we read to our son when he was younger. She gets so excited about her bedtime story every night. She picks out the book and we read together.
Another way we inadvertently encouraged reading with our son was to leave the closed caption on the television, with the volume always a little lower. The lower volume keeps the home calmer and having the closed caption on helps the kids focus and read along while they are watching television.
We also love to play word games to help encourage the kids to learn and expand their vocabulary. One of our favorite family game nights games is scrabble. It helps build spelling skills and helps for us to teach our kids some fancy fifty cent words!
A fun example of a fifty cent word we’d play to teach my son something new would be amorphous. We try to play cute words like this, but make sure to never go overboard and use completely obscure words that we’re not even sure of. As Mark Twain said, “Don’t use a five-dollar word when a fifty-cent word will do.”
While we’re playing scrabble, snacks are definitely a must. Here we have Pringles® Snack Stacks and Cheez-It® snack crackers. These are two of my families favorite snacks are a perfect snack to enjoy while playing our favorite family game!
Both of these items (Pringles® Snack Stacks and Cheez-It® Variety Caddy Pack) came in a family pack, which makes them perfect for snacking on family game night, lunches or snacking while on the go.
