To celebrate being nominated (by myself) for The Homeschool Blog Awards Vlog Category, and to inspire you to bip over there to vote for us, I’ve decided to post a vlog from the archives every day this week. Tomorrow, we’ll entertain you with an all-new VLOG! For today, here are Days 4 + 5 of “How to Read Aloud”. Mind you… my IRL friends make fun of me for this series, but they secretly love it. I hope you do, too.

    3 quick points

    Quick because the kids history video just ended and I have to resue my role as teacher.

    1. The top video alone has made me stop looking @ other HSBA Vloggers nominess. You have my vote.

    2. I definitely agree what you said in the video. However, When I read that book to my kids, the main thing I was concerned about was, the insistence found in most children’s literature that broaches the subject of science, that evoloution is fact. My kids actually corrected that themselves and then make sure that we don’t take that book home.

    3. What your saying is not only true in read-a-loud books. When my kids started reading Peanuts and Calvin & Hobbes cartoons. I had to step in and make sure they were not emulating bad behavior (specificallty Lucy’s crabbiness, and bossiness and Calvin’s complaining and disrespect.) I even had to remove those books from their diets on occasion.

    Congratulations on a good blog and my vote.

    Hi Laura,

    Thank you for your thoughtful vlog! I completely agree and practice this as well. I also agree with Home School Dad when it comes to the particular book that you selected for your example. The “millions of years” part should be omitted or explained from a Christian worldview to accurately reflect the Genesis account of creation…that everything was created in 6 literal days! Thank you so much for your vlog and keep up the great work 🙂
