Accelerated Reader motivates the children to read more for pleasure. It aims to widen vocabulary, improve children's reading age and promote reading for enjoyment. It is a computer-based program which provides sufficient challenge to enable the children to continue to progress. It helps children choose books that are on their reading level, yet still challenging. Children are given a level, within which they can choose a variety of books that interest them. After reading a book, the children will take a quiz to check their understanding. Progression through the levels will be determined by their quiz and reading test results.
Our Accelerated Reader sunflower display includes all children on the reading programme. Each child is set an individual target and moves up the sunflower as they continue to grow as a reader and earn points from completing their reading quizzes. When children reach 100% a reading prize is awarded.
