Students and teachers are happy to practice the things they love and our Book Fair was the perfect place to find and choose the books they wanted to practice their reading skills.  The three media assistants, Gianni, Sonya and Aniya, supported our Book Fair by helping our students and teachers to select resources within their budgets in order for each customer to build a better personal collection of books. Thank you for supporting our Book Fair. We raised enough profits to get many brand new books.

        
Scanning For Words Using the Letters A and R To Help Promote the Accelerated Reader Program
Published by Beverly McClellan on December 7, 2017

Photo of a media center bulletin board  showing the Accelerated Reader Campaign was off to a great start!The Accelerated Reader A R program is designed to promote reading and comprehension by attaching quizzes with point values to great books.  Students go online after reading an AR book and take a quiz.  Points earned are placed on their individual A R accounts.

Students enjoy this simple process.  Reading, quizzing, earning points, and bragging about the points they have earned.

Photo of students working on computers in the media center and engaged in both STAR and Accelerated Reading online activities.To promote A R we are going to do one more thing. We are going to have students find as many words as possible that have these two letters included while they are doing their regular second nine weeks reading. For example, ALLSTAR has these two letters in order together, while rain has the letters reversed, and format and painter have the letters separated. Constantly looking for words with these two letters will add thinking time to promoting the Accelerated Reader program and this fun reading game will also promote vocabulary building.  During December and January students will be focusing on exploring books in the Reference Collection and finding the A R books included in that part of the media center.  We will archive the words that we find so that we can share our knowledge with others by using an online site called Padlet.

Students also got to take an Accelerated Reader Quiz (5532) on the book too. Students were also encouraged to use NCWISEOwl, the online free resource.

Through its strong network of volunteers and donors the American Red Cross tries to make sure that our communities are prepared for disasters.  One way they do this is by going to schools and teaching students how to handle emergencies.   Educating the public is something that the Red Cross is proud of and our school was so proud to have representatives recently from the organization to teach our students safety tips.
