Last Term each student in Room 9 created an Accelerated Reader Target goal to achieve by the end of the term. Mrs. Baldwin was very impressed with most students choosing appropriate books for their level and completing the AR quizzes so that their target was achieved. There were a lot of students who achieved 70% or more of their target and even some who not only achieved their target but kept completing the quizzes to boost their target percentage to over 130%!
A lot of students have also achieved several certificates by moving through the Certification Levels. Most students have moved from Ready Reader and have even reached as far as Advanced Reader which means they have moved up 4 levels in a term! Mrs. Baldwin will continue printing certificates this term when a level has been achieved.
This Term we will continue to use the AR display in our Classroom to help monitor our new targets for Term 3. This week Mrs. Baldwin will re-interview all students to discuss how students felt they went with their point target last term and whether any adjustments need to be made. All Accelerated Reader Targets are created by using each students AR Reading level along with how many minutes each child on average reads per day.
Remember everyone can access the AR website to complete the quizzes in the morning or in certain times throughout the school day. You can also access it straight after school by using the link that has been provided on our class blog under ‘literacy sites’.
Mrs. Baldwin is looking forward to seeing everyone’s enthusiasm and motivation continue this term to achieve your new Target for this Term.
Good luck everyone!
