To celebrate reading month, we have a few fun activities lined up to honor this special time. Reading is so very important and it's my goal to encourage it on a daily basis. It definitely expands the mind.
Little Bethany is in a private preschool program 2 mornings a week and they had a sign up for special readers for the month of March. Kelly signed up to be the second special reader of the month. Bethany was so thrilled and proud to have her there.
Kelly was slightly apprehensive as she wasn't sure if the little ones would even pay attention. I told her to read with a lot of expression as to keep their eyes on the colorful pictures, (former preschool teacher speaking, haha). She did a great job and they all listened pretty well.
As you can see in the pic, Bethany got to sit right next to her big sister to share in the reading fun. Bethany was more excited to sit in front of the class and didn't really care about the book anymore. So typical, love it.
Prior to Kelly, another little girl's sister read to the class. She was only 5. She did a great job, though the kids stared into space. I so love the preschool age though it can be a challenge at times. It's a joy to see their little faces shine with wonder and excitement at anything that is presented before them. Such a bittersweet time that sweet Bethany will be turning 5 this May. Where has the time gone?
Happy Reading Month!
