Each child was given a lined piece of paper and pencil to record their progress. Then came the fun part, I made up a point system for each type of reading completed. On Monday, they can cash in their points for an array of prizes.
All in all, it's been a success. We got a break from winter schooling, and the learning continued in spite of it.
