The Bellefonte Area School District uses the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Reading Counts program in grades K - 5.
Students will read more and become better readers using Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Reading Counts! In addition to reading great books, they can monitor their own progress in the program and gain satisfaction when they meet attainable goals.
With the program students can choose to read books of their own interest at their reading level. Students can then take quizzes to test their knowledge about the book and recieve points for their success. Scholastic currently has a library of over 40,000 quizzes available for students. Students and parents can search the Scholastic website to determine if their favorite book has a quiz associated with it and how points they would recieve if they successfully pass the quiz.
