First Grade Schedule: (2:30-3:00) ARAll students have been tested (STAR) and have been matched accordingly to a shark level. Currently, students in our classroom range from the Cookie Cutter Level to the Mako Level. During AR, students read a book of their choice on their instructional level. Once a student feels he/she knows everything about the book, the student may decide to take a test. This test is a 5 or 10 question quiz asking students to comprehend the book. Students are not allowed to look back in the story for any reason during the test. Each shark level has different requirements for graduating. Students must complete these requirements before moving onto more complex texts.
