Pre-K will be participating in the Accelerated Reading program. Accelerated Reading, or AR is a wonderful computer reading program that helps children learn to read and improve their reading comprehension skills.
Please write down the name of the book on the student's AR log so we know you read the book to them and return the book with the AR Log in your child’s folder every day. We can only give an AR test if the title is written. I recommend that you read a book together three times. Mrs.Cayla will read students questions off the computer about the book. Students receive points for questions answered correctly. We will check out a different book after testing. I know it sounds confusing now, but it is really quite simple and students love taking the tests! They usually can't wait to check out another book.
I will also read AR books to the whole class and Ms. Cayla tests the whole class. Please don’t be discouraged if your child doesn’t score well sometimes. They are just learning how to take tests and some of the questions are very difficult. We will continue to test the whole class on books that I read to them throughout the year. Please use the Renaissance Home Connect paper and log in so you can see all your child’s test scores. If you are having problems using the Renaissance Home Connect, try using firefox instead of google, or typing in the address. Please let me know if you have any questions.
