My kids reading aloud to me

I have been having my older girls read aloud to me while I am working in the kitchen. It has been a beautiful thing. Here are some reasons why.

-I get so bored while I am working, so it is fun to become engrossed in what they are reading to me.

-It is so good for them to read aloud. I read that when a person has brain glitches, like my oldest, it is like rewiring their brain to read good quality literature aloud. So the more she can do it, the better.

-It is a time that I can share with each child. We enjoy the book together.

-It is a fun and stressless time of schooling.

Great idea. I just have the girls read to me when we are doing school but the kitchen reading thing is a great idea and they seem to love to read aloud. I never would have thought of it.
