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 and on the take-home books that they read each night for homework. Each book is worth a certain amount of points. 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.
