My son Mica was in a reading group at school. They all read Golden Sower Books. They had a match where they competed with other schools. The match consisted of a lot of questions on their books. Their group went on to the next round. They started out with 40 groups, and ended up being 1 of the 15 groups left.
Last week week they had their next round. They went through 3 rounds of questions. It was then that another group won. Mica was bummed. I was proud of them for working so hard, plus Mica was the team captain, so he had to know all the titles and author's names.
One of the Dad's in their group brought them matching nerd glasses to wear. Ha!

This is all the smarty pants that got to the last round - Mica's way in the back/center:
Have you ever competed with anything before?
