How Can I Help My Child With AR?
20 Minutes Every Night!
Children in grades 1-4 should bring home a library book every day after school. This book should be read at home and brought back to school every day. Once the book has been completely read, your child will be able to take an Accelerated Reader (AR) test on that book. When the AR test is complete, your child may return this library book for a new book at their teacher's convenience.
Each PASSED AR test will earn your child points with AR. Your child will have a point goal to meet each nine weeks. Completion of this goal will be one step towards earning fun incentives provided by our library!
First Grade Incentives
Beginning during the second nine weeks, your child's teacher will set a personal point goal for your child. If this goal is met AND your child has at least 80% accuracy, he/she will be invited to the AR party for the current nine weeks. Please stay in touch with your child's teacher for more information on his/her point goal and AR deadlines.
2nd-4th Grade Incentives
- Met and/or surpassed their personal AR goal set by their teacher.
- Read (and pass the AR test) for the required genres that nine weeks.
