She did read while waking up today, about 30 minutes. She woke early. She is reading One Crazy Summer.

She loves researching, so maybe this weekend we will look some stuff up. Also we are hoping to go hiking at a state park tomorrow, maybe we can find some brochures.

We read for way more than 15 minutes!  I read the Very Hungry Catepillar, The Worst Helper, and The Surprise Snowstorm.  Then the twins picked books and made up stories to match the pictures...kinda like they "read" to me.

We will read tonight for 15 mins. We didn't finish his goosebumps book last night so we will finish it tonight. We will be going to the library this weekend so we will see if we can find some books about our area.

This morning before school. I read her book to her. They are having a reading text on it.
No, she hasn't read anything about our city or state. We will make a trip to the library for a book about our area.
