Friday Pre-Reading

Pre reading


It seems odd but I look forward to my weekly pre-reading hours. It’s usually on a Friday afternoon and might carry on until night. I take my time and read through all the chapters that my children will be tackling the following week. I jot down notes to prepare for my children’s narrations and possible discussions. I gather the pictures, links, and maps needed. I examine my weekly targets and schedule it proportionally throughout the week. I make sure that each day has hours and hours of free time for the children, to give way for their other interests. Not every day is the same but with a weekly goal in mind, I can easily adjust if needed.

All this planning with a cup of coffee, some sweets, favorite pens, my midori and my giant moleskine.

...just a few of my favorite things to do on a Friday afternoon.


  1. I recently found your blog and am enjoying it, thank you.

  2. Hi Gina, where do you usually buy your books here in the Phils?

    1. Hi. Unfortunately, books here in the Philippines are limited. I have no choice but to buy all my books from Amazon.
