Accelerated Reader (AR): 3RD QUARTER AR CLOSES 3/1/24

 AR is used by many schools to track students' reading comprehension. Each student will be given a goal to reach each 9-weeks. I have given students an AR record sheet that they will keep in their folder (3rd grade: Orange, 4th grade: Red, and 5th grade: Purple). On this sheet, you will see their reading level. This is the level of books they will be expected to be reading. After testing on AR, students will record scores and points earned on a record sheet in their folder. There will be a space for parents to initial. Students will not be able to test at home. Below you will find EACH GRADE LEVEL WEEKLY GOAL:

3rd grade: 3 POINTS

4th grade: 3.5 POINTS

5th grade: 4 POINTS
