Accelerated Reader


The information on Home Connect was sent home last week.It gives you access to information regarding AR tests that your child has taken.


The best way you can help at home is making sure your child is reading every night for 15-20 minutes and making sure they understand what they are reading. If books are too difficult, it becomes discouraging and we do not want that to happen! Also, having your child read out loud to you is a very meaningful way to practice reading fluency.


If there is a book at home that your child wants to read and they want to see what level it is on, they can find it on the website, ARBookFind, that I have linked below.
