"And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." Deut 11:19

I wanted to share something special which is now taking place in our home. Magoo has started to read simple words, and is sounding out longer ones! Now he is able to read most of his verse during the daily Bible readings.

We follow a daily reading planner (if you'd like the link just ask and I'll find it for you) that has 3 sections (2 OT, 1 NT) for each day. However we find it too much for the children to sit through all three and get something from them, so we follow 1 book of the Bible at a time, and do that reading with the children and then finish the other one our own. Usually I will do 1 reading with them in the morning after breakfast and 1 in the evening. We are doing Leviticus in the morning and Psalms in the evening. We involve the children by asking questions and then playing pictionary about that section, or act it out and look at books that have illustrations of the storyline or for example, we are looking at a book of the tabernacle right now with the readings in Leviticus.

Anyways I am thrilled Magoo is starting to read! So yes I had to grab the camera and snap a picture!
