Accelerated Reading Program Coming to Highlands
Mrs. Leslie Shein, Elementary Assistant Principal, is excited to share that Accelerated Reader (AR) is coming to Highlands soon! AR is a guided reading program used to supplement regular reading instruction in the classrooms. The goal is to improve students’ reading skills through reading practice and quizzes on the books they read.
The AR program calls for students to select a book, read the book, and then take a computerized quiz based on the book’s content and vocabulary. Students can earn points for their books and work toward individual goals and prizes!
Additional information will be sent home with students.
