AR that is. Here we go again. Andrew's teacher has moved him to the highest level of this program. It's an 8th grade reading level. He has more than enough points to satisfy his marking period goal. He started reading a new book and the teacher told him that he cannot read it at school because it wasn't an AR book. HUH? So now he started reading a dumb "Pirateology" picture book he got at the school library. Soooo beneath him. He's mad he can't read the book he wants. Where's the sense in that? GGGRRRRRR. I HATE AR.

That. Is. REDICULOUS! Does he have to read LIBRARY AR books, or just any book on the AR scale? Can you check out books at a public library and have him read those while at school?

It can be any AR books. I just don't understand why he can't read what he wants. The goal of the program is to encourage reading. His goal was 7 points and he has 55. Can't he now read what he wants until the next marking period starts?

You know, you have to choose your battles, and this is a battle I would pick. I'd call his teacher and the principal and state your case. It makes perfect sense to me, and I hope they will see that.

I'm so glad that our school doesn't do this. I would fight it. Good luck!
