Accerated Reader (AR)

Accelerated Reader Info for 2015-2016 School Year:
Why do we use AR?? 
Parent's Guide to Accelerated Reader:
~Although we do not require our students to participate in the AR program we try our best to motivate and highly encourage them to do so in order to increase their reading fluency, comprehension and interest in reading!! We feel that their hard work deserves to be rewarded so we have created marking periods and reward goals/trips to do so!!
*Goals for each marking period:

Kindergarten - Read and pass 10 AR tests
(*Please note that AR tests will not begin for K level students until after Christmas Break)
1st - 10 points
2nd - 12 points
3rd - 18 points
4th - 20 points
5th - 25 points
The marking periods and rewards will be as follows; subject to change if we have bad weather :)
  • 1st period ends November 2015 : Reward--Bowling or Cinema 
  • 2nd period ends February 2016 : Reward--Swimming @ LWC Indoor Pool
  • 3rd period ends May 2016: Reward--Inflatables & Ice Cream Sundae Party
If a student does not earn the first reward they can still get the second one by earning all the points for the two marking periods.  For example a student in first grade that misses the first reward can get the second reward if he/she earns 16 points by the end of the 2nd marking period.  Like last year there will be a trophy for the top AR reader in every class, a t-shirt for the top reader for each grade, and then a large trophy/prize for the top reader in the school. 


*Any student, parent, or teacher can access this great website from anywhere! The AR Bookfinder website allows you to check any book you may have at home, checked out from public library or from school that may be AR. There are many students that read books from their home library and are not sure if they are AR so this is a wonderful way to find out grade level, possible points, etc... on any AR book!
Happy Reading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
