I don’t know anything about Accelerated Reader these days, but I LOVED it when I was in school!

Good to hear, Sarah!

My kids do it in elementary school. I don’t know if I have a particular feeling about it, although I love that it’s got a wide range of books in our school so that the kids can pretty much read what they like.
I appreciate that when my daughter tends to start reading books too low for her reading level, the teacher can tell by the AR levels and let her know she should step it up. 🙂
