AR (Accelerated Reading) Program

This is just an overview to let you know how AR works in our classroom:
 
Your child may be coming home with books leveled from .2 through 4.0 or higher. These levels should be written on the inside cover and there should be a colored sticker on the binding of each book. The levels and colors are as follows:
 
Yellow: .2 to .9
 
Green: 1.0 to 1.5
 
Pink: 1.6 to 2.0
 
Orange: 2.1 to 2.5
 
Red: 2.6 to 3.0
 
Blue: 3.1 to 3.5
 
Dark Green: 3.6 to 4.0
 
The students will first start in at yellow and someone will help them read and take the quizzes if needed. When they are able to read and take the quizzes alone they will be required to get a 92% before moving on to the next level, which would be bright green. You will be able to find the % your child is at on the Progress section of the AR papers since home weekly. The teachers will then move your child through the levels as they continue to hold a 92% or better. When your child moves out of the yellow level, they are required to read the quizzes and take them on their own.
 
As kindergarten and first grade teachers, we are trying to prepare them for 2nd grade. They are required to do AR quizzes on their own when they reach 2nd grade and they become a part of their reading grade.
 
If you have any questions about how AR works please contact me at school by phone #724-1941 or by email at bboyce@wellsborosd.org.
 
Thank you and keep up the great job your doing reading each night with your child!
