Accelerated Reader (AR) Program Promotes Reading
Published by Beverly McClellan on October 22, 2017
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

Bulletin board with the capital letters A and RThe Accelerated Reader (AR) 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 AR accounts.

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

STAR and Accelerated Reading activityTo promote AR 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 first 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 “AR” will add thinking time to promoting the Accelerated Reader program and this fun reading game will also promote vocabulary building.  We will archive the words that we find so that we can share our knowledge with others by using an online site called Padlet.
