For my oldest - DJ - he's using Magic Tree House books as his reading list - reading one every 2 weeks as it takes him a little while to finish a book. THen he'll do a small 1 file folder lapbook on the book he just read. Some of the resources we'll be using for these lapbooks:
- http://www.randomhouse.com/teachers/magicth/activities.html - worksheets
- http://www.randomhouse.com/teacher/magicth/guides - teachers guides
- http://www.curriclick.com they have several worksheets and such
- http://www.randomhouse.com/kids/magictreehouse - this too has some great activities. It also has a passport you can print, you then print a little 'stamp' for each book. When a child reads a book they can paste the 'stamp' into their passport.
For my youngest - Xman - we're using Dr. Seuss and rhymes for our reading, as he's just starting to read independently.
