Books and Beyond

A good friend of mine is in charge of this program that the PTO runs at Nelson Place school where Isaac and Theron just finished 2nd and 1st grade. The program is called Books and Beyond and runs for all of the students from kindergarten through third grade.

Each child is to read either 20 books (anything goes) or 300 pages. The students can also fill this requirement if someone else reads to them. There were small rewards at the end of each month for each student who filled the requirement. Then at the end of the year all the students who completed the program were awarded medals and the students who read the most pages in their class were awarded a trophy.
We had two pretty excited boys that day. I really enjoyed the program and look forward to the possibility of bringing it with us to our next school in Washington.
