What is Accelerated Reader (AR)? • A computer program designed to encourage student reading • AR tests comprehension using multiple choice quizzes • Computer software provides information about student performance to teachers and parents (if desired) • Each book has a point value, starting at 0.5 for easy books to over 10 points for some chapter books
Who participates in AR? • K-5 students • Program is voluntary, but strongly encouraged • Goal is to encourage students to read and recall information about what they’ve read
How do I know if a book has a test? • In this library, look at the spine • Colored dot • White label with AR printed on it • Books from home and from the public library probably have tests, too! • Check at http://arbookfind.com
Does my child have to answer every question correctly to get points? • To receive the full point value, all questions must be answered correctly • However, students will receive partial credit for answering most of the questions correctly • Students must receive a score of 70% or better to receive points
Is it OK to help my child? • Reading together is always encouraged! • I encourage students to read easy books at least twice to ensure comprehension • K-2 students may have help reading questions, but they should be able to choose the correct answer themselves • Students in grades 3-5 should test on their own
What happens if my child reaches his/her goal? • Students will be rewarded each time their goal is met • These rewards may consist of extra recess time, special prizes or snacks, etc. • At the end of the school year, we will take students who met EVERY goal for the school year on a special FIELD TRIP!
How can I keep up with my child’s progress? • Notes will be sent home at least once per 9 weeks to update parents on their child’s progress • You can also log in to AR Home Connect using your child’s user name and password for real time progress reports • Home Connect allows you to see which books your child has tested on, their scores, and their progress toward their goal • You can also receive emails each time your child takes a test
Other AR Rewards • Students are also recognized for reaching Point Clubs throughout the school year • K-2 students will be recognized starting at the 25 Point Club • 3-5 students will be recognized starting at the 50 Point Club • Point Club members will receive special awards on Awards Days and may receive other special privileges throughout the year!
Other AR Rewards • Point Club members will be featured on the library bulletin board • If time allows, Point Club members will also be featured on the in-school television announcements • Parent volunteers are ALWAYS needed and welcomed in the library!
