To show that you have read the book, also complete your quiz on Accelerated Reader OR complete a worksheet from the library about your book.
The students who have already attend enjoyed delicious cupcakes, biscuits, juice, hot chocolate and music.
Remember to get your card stamped each time you finish a book and you can come too!
Well done to everyone for your excellent reading, it is lovely to celebrate this with you.
“Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be.”
Our forever expanding selection of donated and second hand books makes up Readcycle. All these books have been read and reviewed by a member of the school community. Come and review a new book and earn a golden ticket.
Accelerated reader -
At Mount St Mary’s we support reading for pleasure but we also want out students to become the best readers they can be.
In Years 7, 8 and 9 students complete a Star Reading Assessment which gives them a reading range. Each book is then labelled with a number on the cover so that children easily find books in their personalised range. Children are encouraged to read within their range most of the time in order to make the optimum amount of progress.
After reading a book, students then complete a quiz to check their understanding.
