Yesterday was an exciting day for our 6 year old grandson, Corson. He was awarded a trophy and certificate for reading 1000 books, during his grade 1 year. They were told at the beginning of the year that this was the teachers goal. She expected the kids to work hard and was a strict teacher, but they kids really learned a lot this year and are very well prepared for the second year.
Corson is VERY competitive and he really wanted that trophy LOL! A few others kids in the class already had their trophies, and one little gal has read 2000 books so Corson was getting anxious - time was running out as there is only a couple of weeks left in the school year. Once he knew he was close, you couldn't keep him away from reading. He was determined to get his trophy and just loved surprising his Nanny and Papa. We are very proud of him - CONGRATULATIONS. CORSON!!
