Reading Tips for AR

    • The book should be within the child’s reading level.
    • The book should be interesting to the child.
    • While reading the book, the students should be constantly asking themselves questions to make sure they understand what is being read.
    • If a student does not understand, go back and reread.
    • Don’t rush through the book.
    • After a child is finished with the book, he/she should be able to answer the following questions without looking at the book:
        • What is the title of the book?
        • Who were the main characters?
        • What was the setting? (When? Where?)
        • What was the problem in the book?
        • How did the character solve the problem?
        • What happened at the beginning of the book?
        • What happened in the middle of the book?
        • What happened at the end of the book?
    • If you can’t answer these questions without looking at the book, consider rereading the book, or rereading the first couple of pages in each chapter.
    • If the child is reading a picture book, take a picture walk through the book. On each page, the student should be able to retell the story in their own words while looking at the pictures.
    • While taking the test, students should double check the answer they have selected is the correct answer.
