Sweetkokoro I hope she loves it! My daughter too is showing signs of not liking reading when she originally did like it. Once she was introduced the accelerated reading at school her interest took a nose dive, she hates falling the tests that go with the books. And half the ones she wants to read are not part of the lists of qualified books, It‘s rough. 4y
SassyBookworm @jb72 exactly!!! And I will try anything to get her to love reading! @readordierachel I‘m crossing my fingers 🤞🏼! @Bookish_B thank you ❤️! 4y
SassyBookworm @Sweetkokoro Alexa loved to read and be read to as a small child but the AR program killed it! She didn‘t like the books, she felt forced to read (I‘m the same way I don‘t like being forced), and she could easily read the 1pt books and make her quota. The high school has helped a little letting them choose books. But if she follows me it will be a while before she enjoys reading again. I was in my late 20s before I started to love to read again 4y
Sweetkokoro Alanni is 10 & she loved being read to as well & enjoyed reading on her own. But she feels the same way as your daughter she feels forced to read & while she can pick what she wants the choices are undesirable. Her teacher doesn‘t allow them to gain points from grade levels below their appointed range and deletes points obtained by them, which makes Alanni super mad. I get the program but I feel it has the opposite effect on some kids. 4y
Tamra I really wish it was open choice for students for so many reasons. 4y
shellleigh33 My daughter is not a big reader either but she loves Stranger Things and graphic novel books. Graphic novels books don‘t get many points on AR tests though and this is very discouraging to her. 4y
Paula3 AR has been proven to hinder readers. I hope she enjoys picking her own books and subject matter ♡ 4y
SassyBookworm @Sweetkokoro wow! Deletes the points if they are below grade level! Goodness that‘s kind of harsh. I completely agree for many kids it has the opposite effect. I understand them wanting kids to read but when they are forced to read books they don‘t like, it just turns so many off of the joy of reading a book you love! 4y
SassyBookworm @Tamra me too! I believe Alexa would lie to read more. Since in high school she was able to pick a book and found one she really liked. I‘m hoping this one she will as well. @shellleigh33 Alexa has found a few graphic novels but they aren‘t as popular around our area as many places. I‘m glad many parent are in the same boat as me with the AR struggles! @Paula3 it‘s sad they keep the program when hinders students. Thank you! She read 25p last nite 4y
booksaremyfavorite My daughters were also like that due to AR. Thankfully now that they can read whatever they want they both love reading. 4y
