If you follow my blog at all, you know that I'm not the only one in the family who loves to read and talk about books. My 10 year old daughter (aka Booking Daughter) is also a huge book lover. She recently started the 5th grade and came home the other day talking about her "reading goals" for the year. As her mother, I was so excited. How cool is it that a teacher has her 10 year old students setting reading goals?
Well, tonight she brought home a laminated bookmark outlining her goals. She not only wrote out her goals, but she also decorated the bookmark with stickers -- another very cool idea from her teacher I might add! Even though she is already a terrific reader, she really stretched herself on some of the goals. I am so proud of her and wanted to share them with you:
1) Read for 30 minutes, 6 nights a week.
2) Finish 5 books each month.
3) Read the first Harry Potter book. (This is a biggie because she has been fighting me about these books for a few years.)
4) Read a book that is over 500 pages.
