The Accelerated Reader Program at Saint George School strives to provide positive reinforcement in order to ensure reading skill development.
The incentives of the Accelerated Reader Program are an integral component of the program but ultimately the development of a love for reading is far more valuable. Students become anxious to challenge themselves and, most times, end up referring books to each other as well as their teachers.
The Accelerated Reader Program at Saint George School continues to develop, evolve, and elicit a great deal of student enthusiasm.
Our Accelerated Reader Program is available to students in grades 4 – 8 and includes thousands of qualifying titles. The software is updated weekly with new selections.
Accelerated Reader has been integrated into Saint George School's Reading Curriculum, but it is not at all unusual to see students taking a book to lunch in the school cafeteria or choosing to read during recess. Parents often comment that their children read much more at home than prior to beginning the program. They have even been known to forsake the television for a book. Reading feeds the brain and we find our students excitedly making “healthy” choices while also having fun being engrossed in a good book.
The Accelerated Reader BookFinder is a web-based search tool that was created for parents, guardians, students, teachers, and librarians to search for appropriate Accelerated Reader books. You can search for book titles based on authors, topics, or titles of books.
Saint George School is eternally grateful for the parents and teachers who continue to make book and incentive donations to the program. It is heartwarming that teachers from so many curriculum areas avidly support Saint George School's literacy program. A very special note of appreciation to the PTO for their continued financial and moral support.
