    We begin AR on Monday August 12th.  On Friday, August 9th, I will walk the class through taking an AR test.  We will take one for The Cat in the Hat.  I am sending home the information for AR Home Connect website.  This is where you can sign up for alerts when quizzes are taken and get more information.  Their point goal is written on the Home Connect letter going home on August 20th.  All students have the same goal for average percent correct, 85%.  Beginning this Friday, August 24th, I will be sending home a weekly report of quizzes taken, scores, and point earned.


    You can search for books using the link on the main school website page for AR Book Finder.  This information is also in the Curriculum Night packet.  If you weren't able to come, I still sent it home with your child.  The majority of the books they are able to read right now are worth .5 point or 1 point.  Divide their point goal by 5 and you will find out how many points a week need to be earned to reach the goal.

    Here is the home connect link:  https://global-zone08.renaissance-go.com/studentprogress/homeconnect?t=254902  (you need to copy and paste the link of it might not work for you)


    After closely reading a book within their reading level, a student can take an AR test in the classroom.  There are designated times throughout the day when they can do this.  The tests can only be taken at school.  Their AR book is usually a school library book, however, they can use a book from home or the public library.  Please utilize AR Book Finder to get the quiz number and level of the book.     School library books already have that information in them.  If your child forgets to bring their AR book to school, unless they are taking a quiz, they won't be able to do their AR reading for that day.  Please help them remember to bring their AR book to and from school.



    NOTE:  AR goals are reset for each new quarter after break.  We will begin from 0%.    Information will be coming home with the new reading levels and goals once STAR testing is complete.
