The children are really enjoying reading in school and have really benefitted from the use of accelerated reader. The children are given an Oxford reading tree book which they can take home and an accelerated reader book which they keep in school. If your child is a free reader they will only be given one accelerated reader book to read at home and at school.
The children are enjoying taking the tests on accelerated reader as have sometimes been able to put their name on the pass tree when achieving 60% or above on a test or in the 100% pot when they have achieved 100% on a test. The children are expected to read their books and mind map then test on accelerated reader. Afterwards the children can then change their accelerated reader book or put their Oxford reading tree book in the blue box to change. Most Oxford reading tree books are able to be tested on accelerated reader.
We try to listen to the children read as much as possible and every child has two guided reading sessions a week where they will be listened to by an adult.
