Read-A-Loud in your Homeschool
Reading out loud is one of the biggest gifts I received as a homeschooler. I have the most precious memories of cuddling on the couch with my young children working our way together through our latest story. I was thrilled to find a move called Read Aloud Revival by Sarah M. She also host an amazing Read-Aloud podcast to encourage you.

A side note on Learning to read:
While reading out loud to our children is important as it imparts so many linguistic skills to our children. One of the most often asked questions is how to teach children to read or why is my child still not able to read?! There are multiple factors that influence your children's ability to learn to read. I wrote a mini five part series on this a few years ago.
The series is not about the different methods used to teach reading but rather about some of the factors that influence a students ability to learn to read.
