Thanks for checking out this week’s Caught in the Act … of READING! What is so great in this week’s pictures of how kids don’t let anything get in the way of reading, even kids who would say that reading is not their favorite thing to do. And I love how Jill of MomsGoneGlobal.com is helping her son to create his own series of books. I’m sure these will be cherished items both now at bedtime and in the keepsake box when her son is old enough to read to his own children! Keep up the great work getting your kids to read parents! It’s definitely working!
Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures of kids Caught in the Act … of READING both last week and for this week. Here they are! If you want your child (and it doesn’t have to be your own) featured next week, please send me a link or a photo to pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail.com. Replace the (at) with @. Thanks so much!!
Please send me photos of any child Caught in the Act … of READING! You can include any information you want (or not): title of book, age of child, if he or she would recommend the book to a friend, etc. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be posting photos in this theme every Monday. Thank you so much for your photos!!!
Thank you to all my readers this past year. And thank you to the dogs that help socialize my dog. I appreciate you coming to my site and hope that I will see you again soon! Expect to see some consistency of features and I hope to get you, the reader, to participate in some of my new weekly features.
If you know a child or have a child that LOVES office supplies, this might be the perfect gift! And the guise is so educational that it would make the parents happy as well!
This is a nice iPhone/iPad/iPod app from Pearson that focuses on correct punctuation using the ever so confusing comma. It’s a quick and easy way to study just this one topic for standardized test.
I am also amazed that The Catcher in the Rye isn’t a movie starring some young, hunky-but-sensitive, guy. But please don’t make it into a musical! For the full post, please click here to go to ModCloth’s blog.
The books are, themselves, what I’d call “workhorses.” They get the job done covering their said topics in rhyming text but there isn’t anything outstanding about them. They are not exceptionally funny or clever. The color book covers 4 colors. The numbers book covers 1-5, the shapes, 4 basic shapes and opposites 4 pairs.
Whew! The kids are back in school! The first month of school is typically a time to assess and review from last year. What does this mean for math?
