Accelerated Reader is a computer program designed to encourage and improve reading, measure growth of the individual reader and to provide quality reading for all. It helps teachers to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer – passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read.

How to support your child with reading at home?
As with anything, performance improves with practice. We provide lots of opportunities for reading in school, however you can help by encouraging reading at home too.
Logging on to Home Connect with your child at home is a great way to discuss the books they have read and their overall progress in reading. Encourage your child to read with you and/or discuss what they have read. A child may be able to decode and read the words but may not have understood it, so asking questions about the book is important. Reading with your child, no matter what the age, is an important part of developing good reading skills and a lifelong love of reading.
