Accelerated Reading Program

Spruce class has just started a great new program to help improve our reading and comprehension. We are able to read lots of different types of books and then answer quizzes about them. Best of all we can see our progress over the coming terms as we get better. We are excited about all the new books we're going to read.

There's more information below.
