This summer, Paige was given an optional assignment to complete the reading of 50 books. If she completes the assignment, she'll be recognized for the achievement and will get a reward when school starts. We also talked to her about how it would probably be a good first impression with her new teacher if she did the assignment. It didn't take any convincing though, for her to get started. We got her a clipboard out to help her keep track of her books and paperwork and she's already off to a big start. Just a few days in to summer, she's already completed 28 books.
Paige has been diligent about updating her reading log, and she has been hauling around dozens of books in her backpack wherever she goes.
