Everyday we have rug time. All the kids sit on the rug (or couch as the case may be) while I read our history, literature, and/or science books. I recently realized that Elena and Chloe could take over some of the readings. Ironically, Chloe, the youngest reader, is the most fluent. So she got the job. I still prefer to read our history and literature books, but Chloe now reads the nature reader to everyone (including Pooh Bear, when he's not busy playing Solitaire).
