A/R Questions Answered

Shhh… There have been a few questions concerning the Accelerated Reader Program. Mrs. Matthews was kind enough to answer them.

This program is available to monitor and assess a student’s reading abilities. The purpose of the program is to determine whether a student has read and comprehended a given book. Reading is a very valuable skill for all people to have. The more people read the better their comprehension and reading skills become. There are three different levels of books at which to read: UG (grades nine – twelve), MG (grades four -eight), and LG (K-three). The website ARbookfind.com is helpful in determining the level of a book. The website will also tell the InterestLevel, Reading Level, and number of points for each book. There is also additional information about a book on the website. Using the websites Accelerated Reader Online or ARbookfind.com,readers are able to find out if the book that they want to read has a test. With a test a reader can find how well they have comprehended a book.

There are 15,000 books for the UG level, 50,000 for the MG level, and 55,000 for the LG level. For any further questions please contact Mrs. Matthews.
