Outside Read Aloud Time

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

Approximately every two weeks I read through a chapter book with the boys.  Today, since we didn’t have anything on the schedule for the day, we enjoyed sitting outside and reading Huckleberry Finn.  The weather was  little chilly this morning, middle 60s, so we wrapped up in blankets and enjoyed the time together.

Thing 1 also spent the time drawing pictures.

Thing 2 was completely enjoying himself sprawled out in the driveway.

Thing 3 is hiding under the blanket in front of me.

It was honestly one of the most relaxing things I have done in a while and I was able to share that with my boys.  It is also another reason I love homeschooling my boys.  Instead of rushing around all morning to get Thing 1 ready for school, so he can sit inside for most of the day, we were able to sit outside together and read a good book.

I am working on making a list of great read aloud books.  What books have you read aloud with your kids?  

Where is your favorite place to read aloud with your kids?
