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 Friday December 16 (the last day of school before the Holiday Break), 625 books have been read and quizzed on. Here are the ten most recently read titles by my 6th-8th Graders.
