Accelerated Reader is a great way to keep track of books that are read independently. Palm Crest provides a subscription for each student to track the books they read. Students can log on to the Accelerated Reader website and take a short comprehension quiz. Students earn points for each book read to achieve their goal set by the student and the teacher at the beginning of the year. Although quizzes may only be accessed at school, parents are encouraged to visit the website to view progress toward individual goals. Click on the link above to access the site.

INCREASE YOUR READING LEVEL
By reading a variety of books that are in their reading range, students can increase their reading level. If they choose books that are too easy, they will likely find enjoyment (important, indeed!), but may not be challenging themselves. If they choose books that are too hard, this can lead to frustration. Use the link above to type in the title of a book and find out its reading level. If the book falls within your child's reading range, it should be a good match.
