Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a research-based reading program that combines technology, motivation, and individualized instruction. Parents are encouraged to monitor their child’s reading with Home Connect. Teachers provide access information at the beginning of the year and parents can log onto Home Connect anywhere there is Internet access. Your child has access to more than 100,000 popular Accelerated Reader titles in our media center and classrooms! Additionally, the classroom teacher can give you the reading zone for your child's independent reading. If you know the zone (example: Reading Level 1.5-2.5), you can help him/her choose books, as well. Check through your children's books at home to read aloud together. This is one of the most important elements. Have your child read to you and you can read to him/her. Ask questions about the story. This will help with fluency and reading comprehension. Both the student and teacher get immediate, individualized constructive feedback to direct ongoing reading practice. Better readers are better students across the curriculum! Research confirms that Accelerated Reader children show faster growth in reading achievement than other students. Children also earn prizes, celebrations and learn to love reading! Thank you for your support!
