Accelerated Reader Program
Accelerated Reader is a programme used in school to monitor the practise of reading.
Accelerated Reader aims to motivate, monitor and manage students independent reading and develop a love of reading.
On the programme children read books and then complete comprehension quizzes based on the books.
Children have engaged well with the programme and have developed a keen interest in reading.
The system can also be accessed at home, this has increased reading at home and pupils will often quiz at the weekend to increase their scores.
Parents have commented that they have never seen their children read so many books with enthusiasm and this has improved their child’s comprehension skills as they need to recall information to get a good quiz score.
As a school we also have weekly & termly class competitions for the most books or words read by individuals and classes which all the kids love.
