Term 3 Accelerated Reader Targets

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.

readingThis 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!

  1. Dear Ms B,

    I enjoy the Accelerator Reader Program because it helps me improve my reading. I am very proud of my last term effort in achieving my target. This term will be harder because some books I have chosen at the library I have already read those books and so I can’t do the test again. I have chosen some harder books which I read with Mum each night.

    The AR Program has improved my reading by learning new words and improving my imagination. Especially when I read harder books with no pictures.

    My AR target this term is 16.3 and I am going to achieve my target by reading each night.

  4. Dear Mrs Baldwin,
    My goal this term is reaching 100% on my AR target. So I’m going to try my hardest.

    I enjoy the AR program because it quizzes you on not just what your reading also how you are going.
    It gives you a perspective of if you should read a higher level or a bit lower than normal and last but not least it also gives you 4 stars if you didn’t like it was it ok it was great and it was fabulous.

    I think AR isn’t the best because I can’t redo a quiz even if I got some questions wrong!

    Sometimes I forget I have read an AR book and I can’t do a quiz. 🙁

  13. Dear Mrs Baldwin,

    I don’t think AR AR is the best at times because if you forget to do a quiz and don’t know the tittle then you can’t do one . 🙁
    and also if you forget to bring your book you can not do a quiz
