At Syringa Elementary they have an AR Store (Accelerated Reading). The kids must read their level books, test on them and meet their AR Goals every 6 weeks. For a reward if they meet their goal then they are given points to spend at the AR Store. This year I have gone to all but one AR Store and watched all the kids come and buy things with their points. The kids have the chance to buy every 6 weeks or save until the end of the year and get something bigger. Katie and Madison saved and each got one of the highest point valued items. Since Jenna is only in first grade she didn’t come to all the AR stores and had less points so she spent hers little by little. The following pictures are of the last AR Store for this year. I’ve had fun participating in it, Joan Mortimer was in charge of it for the last several years, this was her last year in charge, it was really nice to work with her and get to know her better.
