20 minutes of reading a night

20 minutes of reading a night

Elliott is in a reading contest at school.  The challenge is for him to read for 20 minutes a night.  The classroom with the most hours, wins a pizza party.  At least that’s my understanding.

With all the recent Gavin drama, we have gotten a bit behind on the reading. 

However, Elliott has been reading almost every night and is actually reading by himself. 

One of the reasons I got him the guide to his New Super Mario Bros 2 game is because I wanted him to make his passion for video games, advance his education. 

He’s working very hard to read this guide in order to advance in the game. He’s honing his reading skills without even realizing it.

Tonight he fell asleep surrounded in his favorite books. 

This is quite nice to see.  🙂

Keep it up Elliot! Reading is amazing and so much fun. Just wait til you get into fantasy books and start learning about all the different kinds of things that people come up with. It’s really neat and it’s a great way to calm down when you’re feeling sad or scared. Just sit down under the blankies with a book and read away your fears… It really helps. Cat in the hat is a great choice too 🙂
