Read! Read! Read!

Did you know that the most important indicator of a successful reader is the amount of time spent actually reading?! I received this information in an email and I wish to share it with you.

Student A reads 20 minutes 5 nights of every week.
Student B reads 4 minutes a night or not at all.

Step 1: Multiply minutes a night x 5 times each week.
Student A reads 100 minutes a week.
Student B reads 20 minutes a week.

Step 2: Multiply minutes a week x 4 weeks each month.
Student A reads 400 minutes a month.
Student B reads 80 minutes a month.

Step 3: Multiply minutes a month x 9 months for the school year.
Student A reads 3600 minutes in a school year.
Student B reads 720 minutes a school year.

By the end of 6Th grade if Student A and Student B maintain these same reading habits:
Student A will read the equivalent of 60 whole school days.
Student B will read the equivalent of 12 whole school days.

Which student do you think will be the more successful reader and student?
