Million Word Club Challenge: You can use the same books you use to participate in Beanstack. This year’s challenge ends July 31, 2022, so there is still time to make it into the club. Once you have read a book, log into the AR site for our school to take an AR test.  

You can go back in the book to look for answers, especially in nonfiction, but we ask that parents do not help.

Is it an AR book? Use this site to find out!
