A GUIDE FOR PARENTS
At Dynamic Learning we aim to offer the children a wide range of literature to encourage them to read more. To ensure the children have access to the best fiction books available, we invest greatly in a wide range of new books each year, which cater for the levels needed for all children, in a variety of interests and genres.
In order to support our focus on reading, I researched a number of reading programmes that would help develop a culture of ‘reading for pleasure’, as well as allowing staff, parents and pupils to monitor progress. “Accelerated Reader” and its relationship with “myOn” (the electronic library) allows us to achieve all this.

How is my child’s goal/target set?
How are book points allocated?
How can I help my child find a book that interests them?
How can parents/carers be involved?
My child already does well in school. Why do they need this?
My child is not a strong reader. Can they still use Accelerated Reader?
How will I know how my child is doing?
How will my child take a quiz?
Will my child have to read a book I don’t want him to read?
What is Accelerated Reader (AR)?
AR is a computer programme which helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his or her own level and reads it at his or her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the school-based AR website - doing well in the quiz is
an indication that your child has understood what has been read.
