What is Accelerated Reader (AR)?
AR is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks 
a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an 
indication that your child understood what was read.) AR gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which 
the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.
Children using AR choose their own books to read, rather than 
having one assigned to them. This makes reading a much more 
enjoyable experience as they can choose books that are interesting 
to them. Your child will be participating in the Accelerated Reader™ (AR™) program.

This guide (

 is designed to answer your questions about AR. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or librarian, or visit the Accelerated Reader website at

 AR BookFinder

 You can help your child choose books that are both interesting and enjoyable with AR BookFinder.
