Our school participates in the Accelerated Reader (AR) reading program. To discover if a book title has an Accelerated Reader quiz to go along with it, click on the following link, http://www.arbookfind.com.
ARBookFind is a terrific tool to find AR quiz information if it is not already located on the inside of the book cover.
When your child comes into the Media Center and looks for AR books to read in order to take AR tests and earn points, they first need to know their reading level. This is determined by their teacher and/or the computerized STAR Reading Test. The test is designed to find the best level for your child so that s/he can read independently and achieve success on their reading level. If your child doesn't know their reading level, please contact the teacher or our media specialist.
The books for which we have AR tests are identified in one of two ways.
1. An "AR level" color coded sticker is located on the spine.
2. There is a sticker located on the inside front book cover. It shows the maximum number of points that can be earned by taking the AR test, the book title and level, and the quiz number.
If you visit the Marion Baysinger Memorial Libraryin Groveland, look at the books' spines: they also have indicated which books are Groveland Elementary AR books. Also note that AR tests CANNOT be taken at the library or your home, only at your school.
If you have any questions about our AR system, you can contact your child's teacher, Mrs. Shirley (our Media Specialist), or Miss Bunny, our library assistant. we would be happy to assist you in every way possible!
Remember to attend our Family Reading Nights on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. Our library is open from 5:00-7:00 pm for this free event. Your child can read and take AR tests, participate in crafts and activities, and enjoy a special storytime inside the library. Often times there will even be refreshments served. Hope to see you there!
