I gave birth to a Genius!!
I'm just sayin'.
At Joey's school they have a Million Word Challenge.
The goal is to have read a Million Words by the end of the year.
Last year the school had 30 people make it.
The student has to read grade level appropriate books, take an AR quiz about the book in the library and that's how they keep up with how many words they've read. The computer calculates the number of words of each book then keeps a running total of the words read.
Any Who! Yes, as you've guessed already!
MY SON HAS ALREADY READ A MILLION WORDS...IN THE FIRST 6 WEEKS!
That is a lot of reading and a lot of words...a Million words actually. : )
I'm so proud of him! The kid amazes me!
Yes, he's smart, but he's so many other things besides smart. He's loving and creative. He cares about other people. He's thoughtful. He brings joy to me all the time. I'm a proud Mama.
Can he be a 6 Million Word Man by the end of the year...
To Be Continued.
