Favorite Books

So I thought I would share some of Masons favorite books that he enjoys us reading them again and again. Im sure some are familiar and if not maybe you can add it to your reading list. We get the majority of our books from thrift stores and check them out of the library. If we enjoy a certain book we check out then I'm on the look out for it at the thrift stores. They usually have very good deals on books like less than $1 each! The best bargain I have found is 8 Magic Tree House books for my nephew. Four where hard covers and one had just came out and I grabbed them for .90. cents!!! There are times we just buy them from Barnes and Nobles which now that Mason is learning to read I have found that they have some early reader books for $4.

Adventures of Splat The Cat by Rob Scotton

What Happens When I Talk to God? by Stormie Omartian

Boo Boo Bear's Mission by Mary Linda Sather

Fire! Fuego! Brave Bomberos by Susan Middleton Elya

Game Review

So a couple weeks ago I was looking for games to help Mason with sight words. I came across this game "POP for Sight Words" and thought it would be good practice for him. The game consist of picking a popcorn and it has a sight word on it, each player reads the word and gets to keep it if they read it correctly. If they don't know it you put it to side and can review them after. The player with the most popcorn wins but.... There are some pieces that say "POP" if a player gets it they have to put all their popcorn back in the container. Mason loves it when I get POP because then he has more cards than me. This has been helping him read his words and lets me know what words we need to work on. I got the game at ToysRus for about $7.99.
