Accelerated Reader (A.R.)
The goals for fourth grade Reading are listed below:
Students have to read a minimum of 5 books for the 9 weeks. They may read more if desired. In order to receive credit, they must read a total of 3 chapter books first, and then they may read other books as long as the books are at their specified reading level. They will get credit for the novels that are read in class. They will receive a grade on the class novel A.R. test.
I will average their 5 A.R. test grades together for one grade. It’s very important that your child read their A.R. books every night for homework (15-20 minutes).
For extra credit, students who receive the number of points listed below will get to be a part of the A.R. party at the end of the grading period. They will also get a 100 for an extra credit grade. The points are listed below:
A.R. Party Points
1st 9 Weeks- 12 points 3rd 9 Weeks-22 points
2nd 9 Weeks- 17 points 4th 9 weeks- 27 points
