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.
