Books we have enjoyed this past week.

Remy read this book about air and boy did he learn alot.

I have always known that they learn by reading. I see it in our school time all the time. In their private reading I just know they read the book. I may ask what their favorite part was, but that was it. We joined up on www.bookadventure.com and they give little quizzes for the books they read and the children can redeem prizes and I can make up prizes that they would like, such as an hour on www.neopets.com, if they gather 500 reading points.

Anyway, when Remy took the quiz on his air book I was shocked at how much he had taken from it.

Remy has been studying George Washington and we read this one together as a bedtime story for a few nights.

It was really sweet and it was about the child behind the man. :)

This next book was GREAT for Halloween time. If you have a little boy who loves bugs, this one is a must this month.

I found this one when I was studying birds with Elijah. It was very good! Eli loved one certain part of the book. Scientists used to believe that birds clung to each other beaks to wings all in one big ball of bird and they slept underwater for the winter. Crazy, huh?

Those are some great books. That is totally why our curriculum is literature based. It's amazing how much they learn from reading.

BookAdventure is great! We've been doing it for about 4 years now, and even though we no longer homeschool, the kids still do it for rewards to go to the movies or for an hour of Wii, or whatever.
