Accelerated Reader at Brooklands
Reading is a life skill that no one should be without. It develops a child's imagination and empathy, teaches them about the world around them, leads to more highly-developed language skills and improves concentration. Children who read do better at school and it is a great form of entertainment.
At Brooklands School we use a software program called Accelerated Reader which helps teachers manage and monitor children's independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at their level and reads it at their own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer and by passing the quiz it indicates that your child has read and understood what has been read.
Accelerated Reader gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.
You and your child can access inforamtion on their progress by logging into Renaissance Home Connect with their usual accelerated reading login details by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
You will be able to see the results of the last quiz they have taken, find out the books that have accelerated reading quizzes and view the books that they have previously read.
