They Can Read! They Can Read!

Tom and Abby have been working hard at home on their homework. At the beginning of the school year they were given a list of 10 sight words to memorize. They were told to learn at their own pace and when they were ready they could move onto the new set after the teacher tests their knowledge. There are 20 sets total, but they are only required to learn 5 sets by June.

Well, Tom is on Fire. On Friday after school he came home with set number 4. How long do you think it took him to memorize them? About 10 minutes. He's crazy!

Abby is more like a slow waterfall that picks up speed. She struggles for awhile, finally learns about half of them and then all of the sudden she knows all 10 words. She just completed her 2nd set last night!

I think they are both on track to learn all 200 words by school year's end in June!
