I had one goal when I was homeschooling my children and that was that by the time they left my home they could read and would love to read. My philosophy is that if they loved reading, they could learn anything they wanted to.
In today’s world of electronic devices, getting kids to settle down with a book (even if it is on your Kindle!) can be difficult. I found it’s helpful to give them a special place dedicated to reading. It doesn’t need to be very expensive or take up a lot of room. It could be in the corner of your family room, some unused space under the stairs or anywhere you have a little room.
Here are some great ideas from other families. Which one do you like the best?
