What are you doing this fine Saturday?

I have 3 out of 4 kiddos sick with the flu, and 2 birthday parties to attend today. Well, daddy and the one well child (who has already recovered from the flu) will go to his father’s birthday party while I stay home with the sickies (which is not going over so well with the one’s who must stay back).  Then, this afternoon, there is a party for one of my daughter’s friends. Since she is well, she will be dropped off as requested by the mom.

Meanwhile, I am shopping online for chapter books for my daughter that have a read-along CD to help increase her reading confidence and fluency.  I love “retail therapy!”  On Amazon, I have found Little House on the Prairie (#1), and Nancy Drew’s “The Hidden Staircase” (#2).  The CD’s are sold separately from the actual books, so it is an investment.  If it is working for her, however, it’s worth it to buy more.  I suppose I could turn them around and sell them as a set on eBay when she’s through with them.  Someone like myself would appreciate the find!

So, what are you up to?

    We are making lots of goodies today. French Toast for breakfast, Corndog Muffins for Lunch and a tasty Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and veggies! Maybe Mom and Dad will even get a coffee date tonight! Praising the Lord for His bounty, grace and mercy this morning!

    Get well soon!

    Another idea is to get a voice recorder and record when you read to her your favorite chapter books. I’ve done this for my kids and niece and nephews. There’s another great free source for books in the public domain: http://www.gutenberg.org. They have a one syllabel word version of Pilgrim’s Progress. They also have several Lamplighter Publishing titles. If you’d like a list of books I’ve already found, just email me. Also, I found Jessica’s First Prayer on another site (it’s public domain too) and I can email it to you. I’m almost done editing it cause the formating had to be redone when I copied it to a word file. Granted these books have some huge words in them but you can also edit them, print them in a notebook, cuddle up with a voice recorder and ta-da, you’ve got your own high quality character building read alongs that will make deep impressions on your kids for years to come. With over 33,000 titles on gutenberg, I’m sure you’ll find several good children’s books. Before you know it, you will have saved so much in book costs that the voice recorder will be paid for plus, as your daughter gets more fluent, you just might find her recording her own books. My daughter (8 yrs old) does this now and I love that she’s developed this skill and love of outloud reading. Just some ideas. Many Blessings! (check your FB page for my comments on the patterns I just got from ya’ll.) 🙂
