made the move to Renaissance Place
- Accelerated Reader. This version of the AR program provides our
students with access to over 128,000 Reading Practice Quizzes, as well
as additional Vocabulary Practice Quizzes, Literacy Skills Quizzes, and
Other Reading Quizzes. There is a Reading Practice Quiz for almost any
book our students choose to read. Additionally, as new quizzes are
developed, we have access to those as well.
Below you will find a link
to AR Bookfinder, a website which students, parents, and teachers may
use to search the AR database of Reading Practice Quizzes based on
authors, topics, titles of books, and more. It is also possible to sort
your search results, select book titles to add to your AR BookBag, and
print your search results. A Parent's
Guide to AR Bookfinder is available on the website.
Home Connect is now available! Parents
can access information about their student's progress in
Accelerated Reader, as well as set up their account to receive emails
showing their student's AR quiz results. Student logins are the same as
the login used at school.
