Mensa for Kids Excellence in Reading Award Program

As a member of the, I am finding so many resources to add to my homeschooling collection. Recently, I came across a post in which a member shared the Mensa for Kids Excellence in Reading Award Program. It was a timely find too as I just shared my family’s love of reading! Here are a few details from the site:

Acknowledging the value of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ appreciation of classic literature for young people, the Mensa Foundation is providing a year-round challenge to kids of all ages based on the NEH’s “Summertime Reading” list.

This gave me a great idea. I am already doing a personal reading challenge this year (aiming to reading 52 b00ks this year), but I want to do one with my daughter. We are going to aim to complete all of the books on the K-3rd grade list by January 1, 2012. BUT, we will also be drawing 1 picture or something that represents each book that we read!

I think it will be fun! I will create a page on this blog to help you all follow along on our journey.
