Instilling a Love of Reading!

One of the goals I want for my first grader this year is to read read read!  During kindergarten our focus was learning to read.  This year I want to nurture reading comprehension and foster a general love of reading.  My plan to accomplish this is to read lots of books from a variety of genres.  We make weekly trips to our local library where we load up on all types of books.  Some are books that I read aloud others are for independent reading time.

Recently I have found a series that my son really loves.  Elephant and Piggie, the books are very funny and my son loves reading and rereading the books.  
He's reading the books to his brother to his dad.  He is reading to anyone that will listen.  What a joy watching a book lover emerge before my eyes.
