My school uses Accelerated Reader to promote reading, as well as to hold students accountable for what they actually read. I have an app on my phone that tells me how many AR quizzes have been taken and what books they’ve been taken on.
As of today (the 13th day of the month) 135 books have been read and quizzed on. Today’s Top Ten will be the most recent books read at my school. Approved by 6-8th graders in Orlando.
P.S. I’m going to the annual Florida Association for Media in Education (FAME) conference again this year. Last year I met authors Jessica Day George, Margaret Peterson Haddix and Caroline B. Cooney! (I’ll find my pics and post them soon) This year Roland Smith, Gordon Korman, and James Preller will be there! It’s in October, so hopefully I’ll have pictures to post!
