One of the programs at Kailyn's school is called Books and Beyond. This program encourages reading outside of school, and rewards the kids for their accomplsiments. The kids can read books on their own, or with a parent (for the Kindergartners) each night at home. The goal is to reach level 8 by the end of the year, anything beyond that and they receive special prizes. We are so proud of Kailyn for reaching this goal. It was so fun to watch the transition from us reading all the books to her, to her starting to read them to us!! The school held a celebration assembly where all the kids who reached level 8 received a medal for their hard work. Here is our Super Reader!!! We are so proud of you!!
