Class Experience

鈥	Learn about cool things that kids did in the past
鈥	Be inspired to do great things 
鈥	Become an expert on someone that changed the world
Reading Jedi is modeled after a challenge I created for my 1st grade public school students during the 2021-2022 school year. It was inspired by my own homeschool kid's love of the Childhood of Famous Americans book series.

Time Estimation: 2-4 hours per week 
Length of each chapter book: average 170 pages per book (3 books read during the 6 weeks)
Appropriate for independent 3rd grade level. Students may also choose to read with an adult
