Dunbar Primary School Parent Information Leaflet: AR Parent Leaflet Aug 2019

Home Connect

Is your child taking part in Accelerated Reader? Did you know you can log on a website called Home Connect to see their reading results and progress? It’s very simple to do…

https://ukhosted45.renlearn.co.uk/1892871/HomeConnect

Click on the link above and simply enter your child’s username and password (all children should know this) and you will be able to:

  • review results on AR quizzes taken in school
  • view the number of books read, words read and quizzes passed
  • see a virtual bookshelf showing the books your child has read

You will also see a link to ‘E-Mail Setup’ at the top of the page that gives you the chance to sign up to receive an e-mail every time your child takes a quiz to share the results with you instantly! Over 80 parents have signed up to this for free ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Do you have a book at home and would like to know if it’s on AR?

Do you have a book from home or the local library that you would like to read?ย  Go to the link below to see if it is on AR:

http://www.arbookfind.co.uk/

Type in the title of your book, e.g. โ€˜Matildaโ€™ and search.ย  If it is there you will see the front cover of the book and information beside it. Look for the BL number – this is the Book Level.

Matilda is 5.0, so for someone who has a range of 4.1 โ€“ 6.0 this book would be at their level.

Please remember a book doesnโ€™t always have to be within your level!ย  You can challenge yourself and try it independently, read it with someone or have someone read it to you.
