The King of "ing"

Reading in Kindergarten...looks like such fun!!!
My daughter is reading well and the 100 book challenge has motivated her. Although I believe her greatest motivation is the other kids in her class. They motivate and challenge each other. The 100 Book Challenge has its roots in Philadelphia region and it was first used by Jane Hileman, CEO and Founder of the American Reading Company, in a suburban Philadelphia school. Ms. Tish's class had 3 children who read over 300 books the first marking term.

My favorite reading aid is The King of "ing". Wouldn't it be great if we continued to have such fun learning.
