  •   Accelerated Reader Requirements for each Teacher

    Kindergarten Mrs. Beasley Mrs. Lankford No A.R. Points are required.  Students may read A.R. books and take the tests in order to earn points for the A.R. Store.

    K-4 Cross-Cat. Mrs. Bee

    This year, for AR, my class will start with a goal of 3 points and then move it up as the year continues.

       1st Grade

    Mrs. Williams

    Ms. Schaubert


    1st Grade is required to read 10 books each month starting in 2nd quarter(students with IEP's only need to read 5 books per month).  All students are encouraged to read as many books as they can.  We do not take grades on AR or AR Tests.  We use AR as an incentive program where students can earn AR Points to use at the AR Store.  Our focus is on both reading fluency and reading comprehension.  Students will frequently be given the opportunity to retake an AR test if they have failed the 1st time.  Students are asked to retake failed tests because we want them to comprehend what they have read.  Having them retake a failed test and passing it gives them a chance to show us that they now understand the story.

     2nd Grade  Mrs. Capps  Mrs. Stover

    No A.R. Points are required.  Students may read A.R. books and take the tests in order to earn points for the A.R. Store.  I do use the AR Tests for the stories that are in the student's Reading Book and I use these scores as part of their Reading Grade.

       3rd Grade   Mrs.McClain   Mrs. Smith

    In 3rd grade, 7 points are required for 1st quarter, 8 pts for 2nd quarter, 9 pts for 3rd quarter, 10 points for 4th quarter. Students are required to read books based on their Star Test generated levels. 

    4th  Grade  Mrs.Stewart

    Mr. Smith

    4th Grade goals are 7,8,9, 10 points (in that order) for each quarter to qualify for "Rock n' Reading Party" each quarter. Students must be reading at the STAR generated reading levels. 

       5th Grade    Mrs. Hopkins

    Mrs. Mann

    We require 12 pts. per 1 and 2nd quarter then 15 pts for 3rd and 4th quarter.  The 12 pts. are a combination of independent reading, teacher read aloud and classroom group reading.

    Jr. High

    6th, 7th & 8th Grades

    For AR....6th, 7th, and 8th grades...We require 10 points for the first quarter and 15 for the rest of the quarter.  We count AR as a 50 pt. test grade for each quarter.

    5-8 Cross Cat.

    Mrs. Densmore

    In my class, AR is extra reading. It does not factor into the student's reading grade. The students and I decide at what point they get incentives.
