Accelerated Reader is a computer-based reading comprehension program that motivates students to read for understanding. Many of Monroe's library books have a corresponding quiz in Accelerated Reader. The students are encouraged to read books within their reading level. These levels change throughout the year, so consult your child's teacher if your child is not certain of his or her current reading level.
The IRL, or Independent Reading Level, is the level he or she should be able to read and understand without help. For example, if the IRL for a child is 4.1, a beginning fourth-grade level book would be appropriate for independent reading. Third-grade books would also be fine to read.
The GE, or Grade-level Equivalency, is the level of vocabulary words that a student understands in context. For example, if the GE for a child is 2.5, he or she understands many words that a second-grade student should know by the middle of the year.
Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home.
