Do Your Homeschoolers Like Reading?

Do your homeschoolers enjoy reading? Reading can really cover a lot of “subject areas” can’t it? As a homeschooling mom, I like incorporating/combining subjects, and reading pretty much fits into any area.

I incorporate reading into spelling, by letting my boys make spelling lists from words in the books they are reading. Since strong spelling skills can help to improve reading fluency and reading comprehension, I feel good about pairing these two subjects up. Not to mention, they enjoy creating their own word lists. This not only helps them to feel like they have more control over their education (even if only in a small way), but it’s a huge time saver for me too!

Outside of spelling, other subjects obviously are improved with strong reading skills. Science, history…even math. What are some of the ways that you incorporate reading into other areas?
