Why Can’t I Skip My 20 Minutes of Reading Tonight??

Student “A” reads 20 minutes each day.

  • 3,600 minutes in a school year
  • 1,800,000 words
  • 90th Percentile

Student “B’ reads 5 minutes each day.

  • 900 minutes in a school year
  • 282,000 words
  • 60th Percentile

Student “C” reads 1 minute each day.

  • 180 minutes in a school year
  • 8,000 words
  • 30th Percentile

By the end of 6th grade, Student “A” will have read the equivalent of 60 whole school days. Student “B” will have read only 12 school days. Which student should you expect to have a better vocabulary? Which student would you expect to be more successful in school…and life?
