Gullett Elementary School teacher Jacqueline Stark challenged her class of new readers to complete 200 Accelerated Reader tests with passing scores. They rose to the challenge. By May 24, her kindergarten students had passed 243 AR reading tests.
“Students would go to the library each week, check out a book on their reading level and read it independently,” Stark says. “Then, they would log on to the Accelerated Reader online program and take a five to 10 question comprehension quiz on their book.”
As a year-end reward, students enjoyed pizza, courtesy of their teacher.
