Spell-It-Out: Use a word that reminds you of something about January, or choose one of Trea's favorite words that are listed below, and then spell it out. Read books with titles, series names, authors (first or last name), character (first or last name), that begin with letters that correspond to letters of the word you choose. You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.). Such as:
January, Blizzard, Homeschool, Teacher, Sweethearts, Fall, Blue, Gamer,
Native American, Tea, Crochet, etc...


Example of Spell-It-Out: - We used books that are coming out in January, something you do NOT have to do.

G. - Gaughen, A.C. - Reign the Earth
A. - The Androma Saga #1 - Zenith, by Sasha Alsberg
M. - ** “Wild Card” - Masquerading with the CEO, by Dawn Chartier
