AR Book Requirements


The Accelerated Reader requirement for your child’s ELA class is two books per trimester.  There is a specific due date for each book read. This is done in order to help the students develop their time management skills.  Below is a list of the due dates for each book.


1st Trimester:         Book #1 - due Friday, October 14


                               Book #2 - due Friday, December 2


2nd Trimester:         Book #1 - due Friday, January 20


                                 Book #2 - due Friday, March 3


3rd Trimester:           Book #1 - due Friday, April 28


                                 Book #2 - due Friday, June 9


 Students will be given some time in class to read but they will also need to do some reading outside of class in order to complete the assignment.  The books that you child chooses to read can come from home, the library or I have many books on my shelves for them to borrow.  

If your child does not complete reading his/her book and taken the AR test by the assigned due date, your child will be given a zero for that assignment.  As stated in the class policies, AR Tests are 10% of your child’s ELA grade.


If you child chooses to read more books than those assigned, the highest score will be used for that interval.  3 points will be added to that score for all other books read by the due date in which at least a 60% was scored on the AR test.
