Beginning in October, the first grade will be participating in the Accelerated Reader program. This program has your child reading at his or her independent level as set by the STAR Reading Assessment. It is important that children read at their reading levels to build fluency and comprehension. Your child will be taking quizzes on the books that they read in the classroom or checked out from the library at their AR level. These quizzes check how well they understand what they read; earning them points as they pass each comprehension quiz. Students who make an 80-100% on their test will receive a sticker. When they have received 6 stickers, they will receive a coupon to Braums. Students who also reach their designated given goal or extend their point goals will be awarded a Library AR Prize!
