Accelerated Reader (A.R.) is a reading program intended to help with comprehension and fluency. Students will be taking AR quizzes on the computers based on the reading stories that we read in class. Each book is worth a certain amount of points. Most books are worth 1/2 point. These points will earn prizes as an incentive to keep reading. If children comprehend what they read and become fluent readers, he/she will eventually progress to more challenging books as they expand their reading skills.
