Accelerated Reader

Derrylatinee - Accelerated Reader Link

The children from P4-7 use the Accelerated Reader program. Accelerated Reader is a powerful tool for monitoring and managing independent reading practice and motivating the children to read for pleasure. Research has shown that children using this program make clear progress in terms of their reading age. The targets that are set for each child depend on two factors, the result of a Star Reading Test that each child sits at the start of the term and the teacher’s estimation of the amount of time the child is likely to read each day.
