1. Thing1, who would have been reading all summer anyway, read some higher quality material than Boxcar Children and Super Hero books.
2. The boys had some hard but not-too-time-consuming academic work to add to their summer chore lists.
3. They both practiced writing at their own levels.
I got 12 reports out of Thing1. He read considerably more than that, but reading and writing are on opposite ends of his difficulty spectrum. I am pleased with 12.
|Three Swords for Granada. I helped with the adjective, "clandestine." He liked it. :)|
|The Berenstain Bears and the Case of the Missing Dinosaur Bone|
Thing1 used his points to get a couple new Kindle books and a Lego Brickmaster book. Thing2 saved all his points and redeemed them on a Squishy Human Anatomy book he had been eyeing at Hobby Lobby for months.
It's a must-do for next summer!
