  • Why Your Child Should

    Read for 20 Minutes Every Day

    "WHY CAN'T I SKIP MY

    20 MINUTES OF READING TONIGHT?"  

    LET'S FIGURE IT OUT --- MATHEMATICALLY!

    Student A reads 20 minutes seven nights of every week;
    Student B reads only 4 minutes a night...or not at all!

    Step 1: Multiply minutes a night x 7 times each week.
    Student A reads 20 min. x 7 times a week = 140 mins./week
    Student B reads 4 minutes x 7 times a week = 28 minutes

    Step 2: Multiply minutes a week x 4 weeks each month.
    Student A reads 560 minutes a month.
    Student B reads 112 minutes a month.

    Step 3: Multiply minutes a month x 9 months/school year
    Student A reads 5,040 min. in a school year.
    Student B reads 1,008 min. in a school year.

    One would expect the gap of information retained will have widened considerably and so, undoubtedly, will school performance. How do you think Student B will feel about him/herself as a student?
     

    Some questions to ponder:


    Which student would you expect to read better?

    Which student would you expect to write better?


    Which student would you expect to have a better vocabulary?


    Which student would you expect to be more successful in school....and in
     life?
