what was he thinking?

Kyler's school is having a party for those children who met their reading goals in 3 out of 4 semesters. I am very proud to say that Kyler has met his goal in each semester so far. That makes me a little curious as to why he's suddenly trying so hard to make his goal in this last semester. I receive an email each time he takes a quiz over a book. Recently, he has started taking a quiz on every book he's ever read. . .or apparently, every book he's never read. This morning, I received this email. . .

Dear Rachel,

Kyler took an Accelerated Reader Reading Practice Quiz.
Title: El Capitán Calzoncillos y la invasión de las horribles señoras...

Score: 30% correct, earning 0.0 points

My son, the monolingual speaker. . .We obviously need to have a chat.

Awesome. I love how driven he is to understand other cultures. :)

Are you sure there isn't a prize for the kids that passes the most quizzes?

Hey, 30% correct in a foreign language is awesome when he hasn't studied the language! He should get at least one AR point for that!
