Learning to read is one of the most important skills young students learn and it forms the foundation of all learning. At CCCS, we recognize the importance of building confidence and skill in young readers to prepare them to grow and excel academically an in life. We know that students who develop a love for reading will also develop a love for learning.
Accelerated Reader builds confidence in students by helping them excel at their individual reading level and providing incentive for them to read and progress through books that are specific to their level. As they progress, their confidence grows and they continue to be challenged and motivated to develop a love for reading. We are super excited to be launching this new program this month and will be providing contests and incentives for our students to encourage them to read and grow.
New Accelerated Reader Classroom Workstations
To support our new A.R. launch, we have purchased new, dedicated workstations for each classroom (thanks to fundraising efforts). Students will be able to take initial A.R. reading assessments and quizzes as well as track their individual progress. The online system allows teachers to set goals for students, monitor progress, and provide incentives for reaching individual goals. We are excited to be able to provide this new tool for our teachers and students to incentivize reading and help them grow on a personalized basis with a fun and exciting motivational program!
Teach Them To Read…
We are passionate about teaching children to read, encouraging them to excel and to love the written word, and laying a strong foundation for them to do so. Crook County Christian School was originally founded on this principle in 1994:
“If you teach them to read…then they can read the Word and hide it in their heart to sustain them for the times ahead.”Sue Uptain-Gillham (FOUNDER, CCCS)
Our unwavering mission is helping children pursue and know God, know His Word, and to be ready to navigate the world from a biblical worldview founded on Truth. When Sue founded the school in 1994, the mission God planted in her heart then was preparing CCCS for such a time as this. It is the same mission we wholeheartedly embrace in 2023. Like never before, our students need to be trained to know, love and follow Jesus. So, let’s teach them to read…and then teach them to read, love and hide God’s Word in their heart to sustain them now and in the times to come.
