This Accelerated Reader on-line Resource is only one isolated part of our comprehensive reading program.

This won’t take the place of :

  • or be the only method of assessment of your childs reading progress and ability.
  • Whole class read alouds and novels.
  • Retelling Concepts & Strategies.
  • Additional comprehension resources.
  • L.i.P.s (Linda Mood Phonemeic sequencing Program)-Phonics and mouth shape and sounds
  • Many thanks for your continued support and assistance of this, and all school programs.
