AR Day

AR day was last Wednesday. We planned to spend all day reading books. The students were allowed to bring snacks, wear pajamas, and bring pillows and blankets to get comfortable with. We had a great morning with students reading like crazy. It was awesome to see them reading so intently. Unfortunately, the afternoon was interrupted by an anti-drug assembly. We didn't get to read all day long like we planned.

Hi Mr C,
Reading most of the day must of been really fun. I wish I was there because I love to read and to read most of the day would be like soooo cool!! You asked mewhat dance fever is too. Dance fever is when some professional dancers well not really professionals but good dancers who teach us to dance and then at the end of the year for the grade fours and up they get to perform the dances in front of judges. This year we lerant the tango, the show dance and the jive. Dance fever is fun but I missed out on the competion because I was on holidays.

@Bridget AR stands for Accelerated Reader which is a reading program that uses computers to find students' reading levels and then they take comprehension tests over library books they read.

@Mrs. SHE We didn't use it for a fundraiser, but that is not a bad idea. I love the idea of my students doing things that can help others and using AR day for that is an interesting idea.

I think its incredibly proactive and interesting to devote an entire day to reading, its great that the students were engaged for so long as well. We only have a 15 minute block of SSR (Sustained Silent Reading) each day and some of the shorter attention span kids have difficulty concentrating on that but I think that in the right environment it sounds like a fantastic idea.
