Summer Accelerated Reader Program

  • WHAT: Summer Accelerated Reader Program 
  • WHO: SJB Elementary Students (Entering Grades 2-5 and Rising 1st Graders who participated in Accelerated Reader during the 2014-2015 School Year)  
  • WHEN: Tuesday, June 2 – Thursday, August 6, 2015
  • WHERE: Saint John the Baptist Elementary’s Computer Lab
  • WHY: Students deserve a break from the classroom, but not from learning.  The amount of time a student spends reading during the summer months directly impacts his/her academic performance when school resumes.  Research has repeatedly shown that students who read during the summer months typically outperform students that do not read.  In fact, students who do not read during the summer may regress as much as a year in their academic performance.  This regression is often referred to as the “summer slide.”  In order to avoid the effects of the “summer slide,” all students, grades 2-5, are strongly encouraged to participate in the Summer Accelerated Reader program. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to meet the schoolwide learning expectation of being life long learners and to help students maintain and improve upon the reading skills that they have developed.  According to Stephen Karshen, author of The Power of Reading (Libraries Unlimited, 1993) “Reading is the most powerful tool available for building vocabulary, as well as the ability to read, write, spell and comprehend.” Saint John the Baptist Elementary uses Accelerated Reader both as a reading incentive program and as a tool for comprehension.  Accelerated Reader challenges all readers – from the novice to the most advanced bookworms – to read quality literature at their own level.

Summer IXL Math (Grades PK-1)

  • WHAT: IXL Math
  • WHO: SJB Elementary Students entering Grades PK-1 
  • WHEN: Saturday, May 30 – Saturday, August 15, 2015
  • WHERE: www.ixl.com
  • WHY: Research shows that students who are not exposed to educational activities over the summer months easily lose a couple of months worth of math skills.  IXL Math is a motivating way for students to gain confidence, and both maintain and improve their math skills.  Students have access to more than 2,000 math skills from PreKindergarten through Algebra 2, which align to the Utah Common Core State Standards, and IXL Math automatically adapts to each student’s individual skill level (i.e. If a student is struggling with a concept, questions will get a bit easier until the students proves he/she is ready to move onto tougher, challenging ones.  If a student is doing well with a particular concept, the problems will increase in difficulty so that he/she remains engaged and excited about learning.) In addition, IXL Math has information, detailed reports that show your child’s successes and areas for improvement.
