Accelerated Reader (AR)
Accelerated Reader is a wonderful enrichment program that strives to make reading comprehension fun. We believe that reading is an adventure and an opportunity to meet characters and go places one might never go in real life.
When students participate in the voluntary Accelerated Reader program, they are tested for their comprehension of the story they have read. They earn points which equal credits they can redeem for prizes each week or save and redeem for bigger prizes later on. Students can also earn a Bronze, Silver and Gold certificate. As always, students who reach the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels will have their names posted in the cafeteria.
With this state-of-the-art program, teachers, students and parents can search – not only from school but from home as well – for more than 40,000 available books. Simply go to www.arbookfind.com and conduct a search either by author’s name or book title. Besides determining if a test is available (which can only be taken at school), you can also learn the point value and the reading level. Students can then place the titles in their online “book bag,” print it and take the list to their local bookstore or library.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to call or email me.
Thanks for participating!
