Summertime Read Alouds
Summer - oh how we love to embrace our summers! Warm weather, fun in the sun, and relaxation are all words we link to summer. However, learning does not stop at our home, and I am sure the same can be said about yours as well. Neither do our read alouds cease. Though, admittedly, over the summer we tend to pick books that have a whimsical plot or are set during the summertime.
Four of our favorite past summer read alouds have been...
Pinky Pye, Eleanor Estes
Gone-Away Lake, Elizabeth Enright
Return to Gone-Away, Elizabeth Enright
The Penderwicks, Jeanne Birdsall
And this year, we will be finishing Gulliver's Travels, by Jonathan Swift. We started it before finishing the school year, because we had finished all the other read alouds. If we finish it before we are ready to begin the new school year, do you have any suggestions for a good summertime read aloud?
