Andre has started to really enjoy reading chapter books. In his school they have a strong curriculum in reading which we love. His reading level is beyond his grade level which we are extremely proud about. He’s enjoying books that I’m not too familiar with and I don’t think he would really enjoy the Sweet Valley High series as much as his Captain Underpants.
Being a member of the Netflix Stream Team I was happy that this month was all about bringing some of our favorite books to life on the big screen. So I was able to search with Andre the variety that Netflix offered.
1. Charlotte’s Web NEW!
2.The Velveteen Rabbit
3.The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Stories
4.The Magic School Bus
5.The Little Engine That Could
6.Stuart Little 2
7.Tall Tales: The Man Who Walked Between the Towers, The Snowy Day, I Stink! and Trashy Town
We watched James & The Giant Peach together and really enjoyed the movie. It’s on our list to rent at the library. I hope to read it with him so we can have a discussion together about them both. He’s currently reading Because of Winn Dixie in his reading group at school. So I was pleased to see that the movie is available in Netflix. I’ve never read or seen the movie so we are going to have movie night together.
I hope you and your child can go through the above lists & have a movie night as well. It’s a perfect bonding moment! While you’re at it you can try one of these fun craft activities too.
