Accelerated Reader Goals
Each child has an individual goal for Accelerated Reader (AR). Your child will bring home a book on Monday. Please sure to read it throughout the week, and fill out the reading log. In addition to individual goals, students can be rewarded for earning AR points:
25 Points - Free Book
50 Points - Special Lunch
100 Points - Personalized Fathead
250 Points - Field Trip to Bookstore
500 Points - Reading Adventure in a Limo
Tips to Increase Reading Comprehension:
-Read with your child.
-Stop at difficult words and discuss their meanings.
-Make predictions about what will happen in the book.
-Find books that are just right for your child. Children become frustrated if books are too difficult. They can also become bored if a book is too easy for them. Base choices on your child's reading level AND his/her interests.
-At the end of each book, discuss the events that occurred in the story. Ask your child if his or her predictions were correct.
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -Dr. Seuss
