We are thrilled to be an Accelerated Reader school. Scoil Mhuire began the Accelerated Reader programme in January 2023 and to date it has been a huge success. The programme is run in our school from 2nd – 6th classes. The programme is quite simple, with Accelerated Reader, a student reads a book, takes an online quiz, and gets immediate feedback. Students respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading skills. Together with Star Reading, it forms a complete reading practice and assessment solution for students of all ages and abilities.
How does it work?
Your child picks a book at their own level from our school / local library or from their own collection at home and reads it at their own pace. Each class participating in Accelerated Reader devotes 25 minutes of class time to reading each day. When your child has finished their book, they take a short quiz on the iPad / device. Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read. Accelerated Reader gives children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice.
