School uses the Accelerated Reader
to motivate students in first through sixth grade
to READ, READ, and READ!!!
Reader program offers
quizzes on more than 140,000 books.
Books in our school library are labeled on the spine with stickers to show students which books are AR books. The stickers
coded based on the reading level of
the book. The stickers make it easier for
students to select books that are at
level. We offer a wide range of AR books in both fiction and nonfiction.
Once students have selected and read
their AR books, they test their knowledge and comprehension
of the book by answering
multiple-choice questions on the computer.
The computer handles all scoring and record keeping automatically and presents
students with a reading point score based on the number
responses, the reading level, and the length of the book. Prizes are
awarded to students who achieve their grade
levelsí reading point goals. All
students have an opportunity to earn prizes
such as bookmarks, pencils, water bottles, and even t-shirts.
Our BIG prize
is lunch with the Principal.
At the end of the school year,
the top three point earners from each grade
level will enjoy a field trip to Bloomington. While in Bloomington, students
will visit the WonderLab,
a hands-on science museum, eat lunch at Golden Corral, and choose a few books from
Barnes & Noble bookstore.
