Accelerated Reader Enhances Student Learning

Teachers have embraced the Accelerated Reader program which encourages children to read effectively.  As a result of the diligent efforts of teachers, parents, and students, we are seeing tremendous gains in our students’ reading capabilities.  Accelerated Reader is NOT a curriculum.  It is an effective tool for teachers to encourage student reading and to monitor their comprehension and growth in the knowledge of vocabulary.  Parents, if they so choose, can be notified when their child has taken a quiz and the results of their work.  Together, all participants in this effort are talking about literacy and the skills necessary to be effective readers.

We are pleased to be able to say that  our kindergarten aged children are able to access  Accelerated Reader when the teacher sees them as able to handle the formatting of the quiz taking protocol.  Rarely, in Accelerated Reader, are kindergarten or 1st grade aged students involved.  We are pleased to add students to this enriching program as they acquire the necessary skills.
