October Reading Themes for your Homeschool


This Reading Plan keeps us happy + learning at home, all year long

There are many things you can expand on from these topics for learning, such as crafts, book reports, drawing illustrations about the books, rewriting a new ending, or a second story. They are wonderful to add to your morning basket, circle time, and bedtime reading too.

We utilize our library by making requests for the books in advance, and I like to put these topics on my calendar that also has my meal plans on it for the month, and I choose which topic will go in what week. Sometimes we get a mix of all 5 themes of books from the library and read them anytime throughout the month.
