With summer coming up that means one thing (besides lots of free time) it also means kids will have a decline in reading and learning activities throughout these months.
I’ll be honest every subject including our Spanish reading takes a back-burner during these months. That’s why I’ve come up with a summer challenge to read 30 Spanish children’s book in 30 days! My jaw just dropped because I haven’t even fathomed such a feat with my tween. His mind is already on summer vacay!
Nonetheless, I’m going to make this happen and would love for you to join us. You can start this challenge at any-time during the summer months but the catch is that you have to do it for 30-days!
First thing you need to do is pick 30 books that you’ll read together. I’m going to look through our home library and choose 30 books. If you don’t have 30 books you can always check books out at the library. Put the books in a basket or box and visible. I’m stacking ours on the ottoman in the living room. Remember out of sight, out of mind (even if you see them every day on your bookshelf) Am I right? LOL
Second, write a list of books. As you read them you can check them off the list or you can write the names of the books on the calendar. I’ve created a sign (to put over or on top of your books), a list to write the books, and calendars for you to print.
Third, commit and have fun reading with your kids! As you read you can put stickers on the calendar or list. You can also reward your kids! Use your imagination. The most important thing is that your kids read in español.
Join the fun, and let’s read libros de niños en español this summer!
