• Scholastic Reading Counts is a Lexile based reading program that integrates diagnostic assessments of reading comprehension, independent reading quizzes, differentiated literature, and incentive awards.  This program is a wonderful tool for students since it allows them to self-monitor their reading progress on a daily basis as they read and quiz on a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. This technology based reading program enables students to read both at school and home.  Students are motivated to read books that are matched to both their reading interests and level.  If a student successfully passes a quiz, they are awarded points that accumulate in order to earn incentives.  The program is designed to reinforce comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency skills. All teachers have access to reports to help guide classroom instruction and student reading choices.
