There is a big push for AR (Accelerator Reader) this year at our school. We came up with a fun and creative way to motive and track our student’s progress. We call it Rock, Roll & Read!
The essence of the system is a anchor chart or graph where each student has their own tracking piece. At the beginning of each nine week period the student chooses an AR point goal in which they hope to attain. During the nine weeks the students read, take tests and accumulate points. Within the packet there are four different mini-goals to motivate the students, 15%, 25%, 50%, 75%. We have included: recording sheets for each nine week period, four different certificates for reaching the goals, pieces for you to create a goal chart in your room (a plain and numbered version), and lastly bookmarks for 1st-6th grades.
Be sure and download our freebie poster that goes along with this set and check our blog, polka-dotsinthepanhandle.blogspot.com for pictures to see what we have done in our classrooms. Happy Reading!
