Jonah's 5th grade Limo Ride

After field day was over, we rushed over to let Jonah change clothes before the Limo Ride.  He was not planning to even go but Logan made it so he changed plans and went as well.  He was the top reader in 5th grade this year and read the most words in the entire school.  He made the Reading Counts celebration all 6 years.

Jonah & Holder (5th Grade and 2nd Grade Top Readers)

Jonah & Reagan  (5th and 4th Grade top Readers)

Jonah and Braeden (Top Words in the School and Top Points in the School)


There they go!!!  I've always met them at the pizza place but decided against it this year.  
So, here we are at the end of the Reading Counts program for Jonah.  He ranked in the top 5 of his grade every year at Freedom.  He read close to 17 million words and had almost 5600 points!  There are many things I could say about the program.  Some are good and some are bad.  Regardless of my thoughts and opinions, I will say that it did develop an immense vocabulary for Jonah, helped him learn to set goals and prioritize time but most of all, made him fall in love with books and become a life long reader.  That in itself is a major win!
