I saw this program mentioned on the Well Trained Mind forum and thought I would check it out. Book It! is a reading incentive program for K (age 5 by Sept 1st) - 6th graders and homeschoolers are eligible to participate. The program runs from October 1st and ends March 31st and during that time children can earn free pizzas for reaching their reading goals. I think Blue would really enjoy this incentive and it could be some nice mommy alone time for him, maybe it will become our monthly "date"!
I'm a mom with a combination of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus type auto-immune disease. I have three beautiful children, Blue my 8 year old son, and my 6 year old boy/girl twins Yellow and Red. Yellow was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 2013. He is verbal but has great difficulty with communicative language. Some days are certainly easier than others, but I am enjoying the journey of growing and learning with my children.
