World Read Aloud Day

Every year on the first Wednesday of March, World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories.

It's World Read Aloud Day

How lucky we are to be Waldorf homeschooling where sharing stories is an integral part of the curriculum!

Today, grab your favorite storybook or chapter book, and go for some “couch time” this afternoon.

Read Aloud. Change the World.

  1. Just yesterday I was thinking (well, trying to convince myself) that even if we just read aloud everyday, that would be enough. I read the end of Jacob’s story in the OT to Jude while Vincent worked on his timeline within earshot. Then the three of us nestled on the couch together and read chapter one of Renaissance Art (random library book – but so, so good). And then – the piece de resistance – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for afternoon story time.

    So rich. So life-giving.
    Yes we are lucky to be waldorf-inspired homeschoolers!!

    Have an observation/question about pre- post- nine year change stuff. Will email you.

    1. Such great reading! Sometimes I think we could homeschool just by reading aloud. Maybe not for years and years, but so much is created by this. Ok, maybe it’s reading aloud and doing creative things like cooking, gardening, drawing or painting, singing, and bean bags. That’s my ideal life! Going to check out Renaissance Art. And you might want to take a look at The Story of Art by Gombrich (author of A Little History of the World). It’s a huge book and could last for years.
