Read-Alouds for 2014-2015

In imitation of a friend's post, I thought I would post a list of last year's homeschool read-alouds!

This is not an exact list. While this does cover the longer books, it doesn't count any of the hundreds of shorter books that we read. On our read-aloud list, for whatever reason, I tend only to record the longer books. Thus, this list isn't quite accurate - but it'll do for a start.

  1. Fun list! I'm going to look up the one about Seabiscuit. :)

    1. Ha, ha! Gotta tell you, that was the 9yo's least favorite! I had to drag him through it. It's not long, either - it's one of those long-ish "reader" types for elementary-age kidlets. Guess horses are not his thing!

  3. I keep seeing new posts by you in my reader list, but when I click on them to read them I'm informed that the page does not exist. Do they exist? :)

    I'll try another browser . . .

    1. Hi, Anne! I posted that post last night and then woke up in the middle of the night bugged by it, and reverted it back to draft. I will re-post soon - probably after some editing! There was just one part in it that was embarrassing, in retrospect. I always know I need to make some changes when I wake up in the middle of the night thinking, "I can't believe I posted that!" Ah, well - lessons, lessons!! (I may just turn that one part into a separate post.)


I love to hear from you! All kind and thoughtful comments will be published; all inconsiderate or hurtful comments will be deleted quietly without comment. Thanks for visiting!
