The children from first class up have been doing great reading over the past few months. The school has been using a programme called Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice, motivating students to read for pleasure. The children read a book and complete a quiz on-line based on the book to test their comprehension of the text. They then receive a specific number of points depending on the difficulty level of the book and the number of questions they got right.
