Would you like to be a millionaire? What would you do with a “cool million?” Would it make you rich? A Million words that is! A resounding YES to all the questions! You surely will be rich, knowledge rich! Hoʻomaikaʻi Davin! He is our first 5B Millionaire of this school year! When I first mentioned that ALL 5B students are required to READ 1,000,000 words this school year way back in August, Davin said he thought, “I donʻt think I can do that.” He said he “pushed himself” (with some help from Dad) to read in the first trimester and completed 13 books. Well…we are still in the 2nd Trimester and Davin has worked very hard to accomplish his goal of 1,000,000 words…he has completed 29 books to date and working on attaining his new goal of TWO MILLION WORDS! All you need to do to join Davin and become a millionaire…continue to Hoʻomau…to persevere. Great Job Davin!! (With the “Million” dollar smile…get it?! 🙂
