 Why Read 20 Minutes at Home?

Student A Reads 
20 minutes per day.
3,600 minutes per school year.
1,800,000 words per year. 
Scores in the 90th percentile on standardized tests.

Student B Reads 
 5 minutes per day.
900 minutes per school year.
282,000 words per year.  
Scores in the 50th percentile on standardized tests.

Student C Reads
1 minute per day.
180 minutes per school year.
8,000 words per year.

If they start reading for 20 minutes per night in Kindergarten, by the end of 6th grade, Student A will have read for the equivalent of 60 school days. Student B will have read for 12 school days, and Student C will have read for 3.
