Pool Party Birthday Blog Hop!

I am so excited to be apart of another blog hop!  We are celebrating Celeste's Birthday over at Education Highway. Be sure to hop along for freebies and fun summer ideas at all of the blogs!

I have a new freebie for the weekend.  This is my end of the year lunch notes, signs, and gift tags.  Enjoy it free for the weekend!

My freebie is part of my Summer Final Countdown All Access Pass.  I added my last products to it this week. More than $23.00 worth of products for 6.00!  It is a great deal on a ton of great products!   You can get it HERE

My idea saved me this winter.  We had such a LONG winter.  I was having a hard time getting the boys off the IPads one day.  {I have such a LOVE-HATE with these IPads!}  I also noticed we were definitely not reading enough so I invented....drum roll please....D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) home edition.  
Here is a quick overview you can pin so you remember...

We set our timer for 30 minutes.  When it went off, everyone had to read for AT LEAST 5 minutes.  My boys are 7 and almost 3 so I thought this would be attainable.  IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!  We reset the timer at least 5 times and read for way more than 5 minutes each time.  Sometimes we would read alone, sometimes together.  I did not specify what they had to read, they just had to read.  I also made sure I was reading. {It was probably hardest for me to drop everything, but I did}


It made for a really fun morning.  I recommend it for a rainy summer day.  It is not something I would do everyday it will loose its effectiveness, but we are going to try to do it one morning or evening a week.  A great way to get some reading in this summer!
