What is it?
Accelerated Reader is an exciting reading program at Bel Aire. AR is a computer program that helps teachers work together with students to encourage student success and enjoyment in reading. It is being used with positive results in schools nationwide.
How does it work?
The student chooses a book to read based on his/her current targeted reading level. The student reads the book and takes an online reading comprehension quiz on the book. A passing score on the AR quiz shows that the student understood what was read. As books are read and quizzes are passed, the student continues to move forward in his/her reading level. Prizes and rewards will be given to motivate and encourage students.
IMPORTANT AR TARGETED DATES
Students will work towards an AR goal each trimester. Goals are agreed upon by students and teachers. Please monitor your child's progress by signing up through AR Home Connect to receive updates on your child's AR progress.
