• Accelerated Reader Program
    Various books can be classified as an Accelerated Reader (AR) book.  To find out if a book your child has read is an AR book or not, please visit http://www.arbookfind.com/ .  Also, Ms. McCullough, your local librarian, and school librarian, can help you find if a book is an AR book.  Here are the following steps in the AR program in class.
    Step 1:  Child reads an AR book.
    Step 2:  Child comes to school with the book, title, and author name after they have read and spent time with the book
    Step 3:  Child uses their AR user name & password at school to login to the AR program on the classroom computer, they search for the book, and take a quiz over the book.
    Step 4:  Child's score is reviewed by Ms. McCullough.  Child must score an 80% or higher on the online quiz to determine adequacy in comprehension.
    Step 5:  Child can view the correct answers to any missed questions.
    Step 6:  If the child scored an 80% or higher on the quiz, the child will get two pennies.
    **Child will be allowed to test one time only per book.
    **AR points will be charted in the classroom to build student efficacy in their achievements.
    **Most Arthur books by Marc Brown, Magic Treehouse books, Nate the Great books, Amelia Bedelia books are also classified as AR books :-)
    **Many books that we read in class and in your child's guided reading group are classified as AR books.
