The Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader (AR) Program is a computerized testing tool that Lovett Elementary uses to help students increase their reading comprehension growth by reading books that meet their targeted reading range and taking tests to determine how well they understand what they have read.
Not every book has an AR test; however, the size of our test database makes it pretty easy for every student to find a book to enjoy! Refer to Lovett’s website or www.arbookfind.com for a complete listing of all books of which Lovett has an AR test.
Each 9 Weeks, students are required to earn a specified amount of AR points within their ZPD (AR tests can NOT be taken on books lower than 4.0) by the 2:31 P.M. on the specified deadline date.
Please monitor your progress in the reading of your AR books throughout the nine weeks. To eliminate any of the stresses that can occur when turning something in on a due date, please strive to have all books read and all AR tests taken before the due date.
Please strive to read more books than the required amount to help you accumulate as many AR points as possible.
Points accumulated above the required amount will NOT carry over into the following nine week grading period; however, they do accumulate into your overall end of the year AR earnings.
Students who earn 5 extra points or more above the required amount will be able to attend the fun-filled AR Party where they will be awarded prizes and receive treats.
On Awards Day in May, medals are given to students who have accumulated 100 or more AR points with 70% accuracy throughout the entire school year, and a trophy is given for the one student in the school who has earned the most overall points.
*The AR progress of each student can be monitored online at https: hosted50.renlearn.com/90520/HomeConnect.
