We went to the library today. Norah is participating in their summer reading program and she received credit for fifteen hours of reading, got her prizes and filled out her entries for the raffles, etc. Note: She's done much more than fifteen hours, but it's way too hard to keep up with the minutes she reads when she just grabs a book in her room or on the couch or in the car. And, she's too young to remember to keep up with it herself. So, the fifteen hours you see recorded above are the times when she read silently or out loud on the couch next to me when I set the timer.
I also picked up these summer review booklets for grades 1-5 put out by the Waterbury school system. I can't wait to look them over and see what the schools are teaching kids in what grade and how well Norah compares.
