The Accelerated Reader (AR) Program is a reading incentive program to help children in 1st thru 4th grades practice reading comprehension.
How it works:
A student reads a book that is on the AR list and then he/she can take a test over that book on the computer and earn points. The points accumulate through out the year.
Most of our Challenger Library books have AR stickers so that students can very easily tell if the book is AR. The AR sticker also tells the level of the book and how many points the book is worth. Now, students can easily check to see if a book from home or from another library is AR by clicking on the AR BookFinder link below.
Students who earn 100 AR points have their name announced during the morning announcements and they go to the office to receive a special dog tag that says “Outstanding Reader, Challenger Elementary” and then they go to the library to have their picture taken to go on a bulletin board in the main hallway.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Recently, through your generous support of the Library's Book Fairs over the past couple of years, we have been able to upgrade our AR program for our students. Now our students have access to over 140,000 AR tests. To see a list of all AR tests available, click above.
Home Connect provides parents with a snapshot of their child's reading progress, including average percent correct on quizzes, number of points earned, and results on the last quiz.
