The summer holidays are not just a time for relaxing and watching the horizon scroll by; they’re also a time for taking risks and challenging yourself. We’d like you to use some of your holiday reading great books.
We’d like you to aim to read at least four books (preferably more!) over the holiday, and to take the Accelerated Reader quizzes on them so that you get rewarded with points.
- Double check that the books are on the Accelerated Reader system before getting stuck in. (You can, of course, read books that aren’t on the system – but you won’t be able to get points for these.)
- Try to pick books that fit within your Accelerated Reader ZPD range. You can find this by logging in to AR and checking the Progress tab.
- As soon as you’ve finished each book, make sure to take the quiz on it as soon as possible so you’ve got the best chance at scoring full marks.
- Don’t forget to respond to each book you read in your reading journal. Remember that you can respond in any way you like – a review, a new design for a cover, continuing the story – whatever works for you.
If you have any trouble logging in to AR, you can contact Mr Shovlin by email over the holiday: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the break!
