What is AR (Accelerated Reader)?

AR is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his or her own level and reads at his or her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz indicates that your child understood what was read. Teachers and librarians help your child choose books at an appropriate readability level that are challenging without being frustrating, ensuring that your child can pass the quiz and experience success. Students earn points for each quiz that is passed, and they earn prizes throughout the year for the points that they earn.

With the move to online Renaissance, Smithville Elementary students now have access to every AR quiz created by Renaissance Learning. Students are not restricted to reading only the books owned by our school library. Books can come from anywhere, such as the public library or a home library. You may also check your child's points earned by going to https://hosted85.renlearn.com/81805/. You will need your child's login information. If your child does not know their login information, you can request it from their teacher.

To find a book that is part of the AR program, or to check the point value of a book you already have, please go to http://www.arbookfind.com/.
