9-year-old Wylie student reads more than three million words in half a school year and wants to read five million words by the end of the school year


ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A 9-year-old Wylie East Elementary student read more than three million words in just half a school year, something her third-grade reading teacher said she had never seen a student this age do before.

When you walk into the school library, you’ll see lots of different children’s books, but you’ll also most likely see 9-year-old Graham McLean, who has read almost all of them.

This has really helped Graham in his third-grade reading class, where they keep track of how much each student reads. Her teacher, Stephanie Roberts, encourages students to reach one million words by the end of the school year.

“We recognize our one million word readers at the end of the year, which is a stretch for third graders, but Graham is already at three million words,” Roberts said. “When they read, they can understand the world around them. The world is very confusing around them if they cannot understand the words.

Sarah McLean, Graham’s mother, shared that he usually stays up late to add a few more words.

“He stays up later than me,” McLean explained.
