Key Takeaway->The point is to make your read-aloud time work for you, not to have some Norman Rockwell homeschooling moment.
In our last episode, I said that we were reading aloud a lot more these days. But if you have one (or more) of those wiggly children, bursting with energy, reading aloud may end up as stressful instead of soothing. So this week, we are going to chat about three tips to help you enjoy reading aloud in your homeschool.

Years of homeschooling experience packed with trial and error have taught me to do these things when reading aloud:
1. Read aloud after breaks.
2. Keep hands busy.
3. Pause and discuss.
