Accelerated Reader
Due Date: 8/14/2017
Subject: Fourth Grade Reading

The Accelerated Reader (AR) Program has been purchased by Greeneville City Schools as a supplement to the Reading curriculum.  It is a great tool to reinforce reading comprehension and fluency.  

Students are tested on the STAR Reading Computer Program at the beginning of the school year, at the middle, and end of the year to determine their reading level (ZPD). Students should check out books from the library according to their reading level (ZPD) and read their books at home for at least 20 minutes (or more) each day.

Each nine weeks, AR Goals are set according to each student's ZPD.  When taking AR tests that accompany their library books, students should score a minimum of 85% to earn their AR points.

Read, read, read!  Readers are Leaders!  :-)

When working on Reading homework, stop frequently and
ask each other questions to reinforce reading comprehension.  Talk about
vocabulary meaning.

Students are also encouraged to read Accelerated Reader books.

individualized AR goals according to his/her reading level (ZPD). 

We will be enjoying Book Reports and other Reading and Writing projects throughout the year, too. 

The more students read, the easier it is for them to understand ALL subject
areas. 

Reading is at the Heart of everything we do!

school(after 3:15) if you have any questions concerning your child's
progress this year.
