My DD's will be in "3rd" grade next year and are asking to begin some of their own reading. They are both strong readers with good oral narration. My question is how much and what subjects did you veterans begin with when moving your young ones to reading their own materials?
It just makes me sad, because I love sharing ALL their books with them, but I know they need to start this some time... :cry:
My thinking was literature and/or nature study books. I'd like to keep history/geo/Bible as family time. Did you require a certain amount of pages or a certain amount of time? Are they too young even though they "want" to do this?
Thanks for your input...Tonni
