Accelerated Reader is a reading incentive program that RCE uses as a way to help students improve their reading comprehension skills while encouraging them to be excited about reading.
As students check out and read books from the library, they can also take AR tests on these same books. The tests are designed with comprehension questions from the library books that the students are reading. As students take and pass tests, they accumulate points. These points go towards the students earning different prizes as an incentive to read. Your child has a personal goal. All students should have an average of 85% in order to meet his/her goal. I will send home updates periodically so that you may see how your child is performing.
Students should bring home their AR library book every night to read at home and bring it back to school the following school day so that they will be able to take an AR test on that book!
**During Remote Learning, you may find if books at home, on EPIC!, or other online e-reader are AR books! You can find out information on your book title here: www.arbookfind.com
