Accelerated Reader is NOW Available online
What is Accelerated Reader?
How does Accelerated Reader work?
Encourage students to find something to read! Accelerated Reader has quizzes on more than 200,000 books, ensuring students never run out of choices.
This is the best part! Students get to read a book of their choosing. Students can read in class, at home, or out and about in the community.
Once they finish a book, students take a short quiz on what they’ve read. Each quiz is written to ensure students have read the entire book.
You gain instant insight into students’ quiz results. Use that data to set goals, monitor students’ continued progress, and personalize lesson plans.
You can search for book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books.
Although we are offering online work for your children, the days are long when school is canceled. We also wanted to put together some suggested schedules and resources for you to help the days pass more productively.

Baking = great STEM learning
Looking for fun at-home STEM enrichment? Try a baking project (or any cooking, really). Use cooking as a way to discuss measurement and fractions. Is a quarter of a cup of oil different than a quarter of a cup of sugar? How many quarter cups are needed for one cup? What would that same measurement be in grams?
After you've done all the measuring, then you can think about the chemistry of cooking. At what temperature does butter melt? Or water boil? You and your child can generate hundreds of questions and answers about math and science by the simple act of making cookies.
Then, once those cookies are made, there are all kinds of story problems! If everyone in the family gets an equal number of cookies, how many cookies does each person get? What about the ethical dimensions of cookie-making? Who should get the most? The person who cooks? Who cleans? Who buys the groceries? Or should everyone get an equal amount?
Great Writing Activities
