Accelerated Reader
           at Hirsch

Accelerated Reader is a program designed to motivate students to read while allowing them to move at their own pace and level of ability.  Students read books from the Accelerated Reader list and take a computerized test to check their comprehension.  The short multiple choice tests are carefully designed to verify that the student has read and understood the book.  The program will only allow students to take a test one time, so students must learn to read each book carefully before taking a test.

Students make their own choice from 5,000 outstanding and popular titles on the Accelerated Reader book list at Hirsch, and we are adding new titles throughout the year.  Accelerated Reader books in the Hirsch library have colored dots on the spine indicating the grade level. 
 K - Yellow
 1st - Orange
 2nd - Red
 3rd - Green
 4th - Light Blue
 5th & above - Dark Blue

Students are recognized for reaching different levels of achievement in the program.  This recognition is based on points earned from successfully completing the comprehension tests.  These points are determined by the reading level of the book and how well the student does on the test.  Students' points accumulate from year to year while they attend Hirsch.

Students are recognized for the following point totals:

25 pts = Paper Back Book
50 pts =Pizza Party
75 pts = Movie Party
100 pts = Bronze Medal
125 pts = Paper Back Book
150 pts = Pizza Party

175 pts=Movie Party
200 pts = Silver Medal
300 pts = GoldMedal
