With school starting August 12th we would like everyone to know that we have accelerated reading books expanding from level 1 to level 7 and above. Accelerated reader usually starts in first grade. This program personalizes goals around comprehension and engaged reading time. What is accelerated reader? According to:
“Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.) Accelerated Reader gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.
Children using Accelerated Reader choose their own books to read, rather than having one assigned to them. This makes reading a much more enjoyable experience as they can choose books that are interesting to them.”
