Nathan came home with a paper from his teacher stating if he read and passed 2 more tests for accelerated reader by tomorrow, he would be the first Kindergartener in our school to achieve the 10 point level! He will have read 20 books in about 2 months. I think there is a really good chance he will do it too, since he has gotten 100% on most of the tests he has done so far. And to top it off, he got a prize last night at our church for being Ranger of the night! He is in a class of 25 boys, and this is the second time in about a month that he was chosen.

I guess it's nice to see that all of that hard work DOES pay off, and I am so proud of him!

Thanks for letting me share,

Stephanie

WTG Nathan! Thats' great! I love that the kids get fired up about reading in K.You must be a very proud Mama.

Dylan's school particpates in a state program where they count pages read at home. Dylan was one of 4 Ks to "win" a donut party with the principal for reading 24 "stations worth" and his K class read the most pages in the school ( it's a large school, 600 kids, K-5). They read 120,907 pages among the 19 of them.

Again, WTG

Congrats to Nathan!! Keep up the great work!

Do you participate in any summer reading programs, like at your local library? I remember how excited my DS was the summer after K because he could pick out the books and read them himself. And the prizes had a lot to do with it too. ;o)

WTG!!
