per·spec·tive, n. : A mental view or outlook
My kindergartner has been fortunate to participate these past two months in the accelerated reading program at his school which normally doesn’t start until second grade. The first level of achievement in the program is the “cardinal pin” (the school’s mascot). Taking comprehension quizzes and earing points has completely changed my son’s perspective on reading. It has given him a new determinaton and purpose and he pretty much drops everything to make sure he has time to read each day. This week he got his cardinal pin and the excitement level was thru the roof. His teacher gave him a hug and spun him around. He called from school to tell me when he got the pin. And this was the happy face he came bounding off the bus with.
