To promote reading in Ennis National School, pupils from third to sixth class are taking part in the Accelerated Reader Programme. Pupils read books at their appropriate reading level, and then take quizzes online which help motivate the pupils as well as monitoring their reading performance. Each book is assigned a book level and an amount of points that the pupil can obtain by passing a quiz based on that book. Each pupil has been given a unique password and user name by their teacher, which they use to log into the Accelerated Reader website, where they can take the quizzes. The target for passing a quiz is a score of 60%. Throughout the course of the year, teachers and parents can easily monitor the progress a pupil is making.
Parents can log onto the Accelerated Reader website at home (using your child’s password) and see for yourselves how your children are getting on. You can view progress towards reading goals, review results of quizzes taken, look at the number of books read and the total words read. The website is https://ukhosted11.renlearn.co.uk/2935049/
