At Dr. Jonas E. Salk School, we are very proud to have more than 95 of our Kindergartners on Accelerated Reader. Being part of Kindergarten comes with the pleasures of teaching children to read. Our teachers are excited about this magical process where children first learn how to turn letter symbols into meaningful language, and only then, they will be able to master the difficult skill of comprehension.
Our Kindergarten students will continue to learn the skills in identifying basic facts and ideas in what they have read, heard, or viewed. They use comprehension strategies, like generating questions and responding to them and comparing information to what is already known.
We are very excited to have ample time for our Kindergartners to use Accelerated Reader. We have Kindergarten AR during class time, and our AR LibraryClub before school. We are very proud of our Kindergartners; some accomplishing over 100 points and other kindergarteners are ready to receive their first 5 points.
Our goal…. is to build a love for reading for all of our Kindergartners.
