The AR goal in 2nd grade is two small books a week, or one chapter book. Your child must pass these AR test at 80% or higher to count toward your childs goal. Your child will change levels after passing three AR test. It is very important that you read orally 15 minutes each day to help your child become a more fluent reader. Also, ask your child questions about what he or she has read. Example: characters, setting, problem,and solution, etc. This will help build reading comprehension. Thanks for all your help!!! Remember to read, read, read!
