At Our Lady of Grace the Accelerated Reading program is an essential element in the development of each child’s reading skill. While building a lifelong love of reading, this program promotes daily reading practice that is targeted to each child’s current level. Computer-based quizzes provide the student, teacher, and parent with feedback about student progress. Periodic assessments with the companion STAR Reading program allow students to be assigned levels where they will be most successful, thus building confidence and self-esteem. The OLG library supports the AR program by providing colored dots on the books so that students may quickly identify books within their suggested range. In addition to the library resources, many teachers maintain classroom collections.
