Summer Pleasure

Friday, July 12, 2013

I venture a guess when most people think of summer pleasures, they come with things like swimming, lemonade, BBQs, etc., but my favorite summer pleasure is reading. I teach first grade and one of my main goals is to show kids, not only HOW to read, but to ENJOY reading. I am passionate about this! The problem with that is I spend so much time during the school year "doing" for my kids and I fall asleep before finishing two pages! The summer is my catch-up time! I am not fussy about the books I read. Professional books, nonfiction, historical fiction, "mindless pleasure" books, doesn't matter. I realized this summer that I need this to put me into balance with my eating and exercise. In 2 weeks I start half-days of summer school, and I am already worried how to fit my pleasure reading in, but I will figure it out because I have learned here that there are many components to healthy living and for me, reading is one of them!

    I love to read. I read while I am at the YMCA. I get to read and work out at the same time...win-win.

    I enjoy reading too. Trying to force myself to get through at least 5 classics this year... not my preferred genre, so I've only got two done so far. I always seemed to get sidetracked by the books I DO like! Hope you get to enjoy a few good books this summer!

    I had two first grade teachers this year and I adored both of them. I wish I could say the same about my own first grade teacher....then again I probably was not a joy to have around at that age given what was going on at my house. Kuddos to you for all the extra you do for the kids!

    My first grade teacher taught me to love reading. I'm forever grateful to her! I had the pleasure of giving the gift to my daughter. Thank you for sharing it with your children! Ohhhhh to get lost in a wonderful book!!! Such an adventure!
