Accelerated Reader Program

Accelerated Reader is a computer based reading incentive program for students in grades 1–5. Awards are given based on how many points are earned for reading and comprehending stories. There is a complete list of AR books in our media center on the AR page.

Ready….  Set…. Go

Students Read a Book – they choose their book and read them independently at their own pace.

Students Take a Test – short tests are taken on computers in the classroom.

Students Earn Points – When they pass the reading tests, they are awarded points which can be redeemed for prizes.

Ask your child’s teacher about their AR progress. Teachers are able to access and print reports that chart your child’s reading progress. You can request these reports at any time or look for them in homework folders.

Research confirms that children who use AR show faster growth in reading achievement.

Nothing breeds success like succes. Regular use of AR results in a love of reading!
