• Accelerated Reader

    • The Accelerated Reader component of the class reading program has changed starting second quarter.  Each student has a set point goal for the grading period and will read and take tests toward that goal throughout the nine weeks.
    • Each child is aware of his/her individually recommended range for choosing books (ZPD) and should consider this range when selecting books. This can also be found within the black A.R. folder. The A.R. portion of the quarterly reading grade will be based on the average of all tests taken for the quarter. 
    •  The black A.R. folder will come home on Fridays showing reading progress for the quarter.  It is my hope that the students will be motivated to reach their goals and that this daily/nightly reading will increase their skills while providing enjoyment fo books they have chosen themselves~ the new online test program provided by our Muraski PTA now includes a much wider collection of titles at all reading levels.
