 AR 

...Be sure to a.) Read 20 minutes a night

        b.) Create a plan for what you would like to read and be challenged by new topics

*Remember- AR goals are based on a 20 minute day calculation. Point goals are indivualized and are based on STAR test reading level ranges. These ranges are considered recommendations for success in buildling comprehension and vocabulary. I encourage students to read books of high interest-even if they are above their indivudual reading range. In addition, if a book is a part of series, considered a classic novel, and/ or is part of our Caudill Book Program- reading ranges do not apply. Students needs to explore all books - making the act of reading a "want" rather than a "need."Smile
