Presents for Our Book Fair Kickoff!

Last year the PTA book fair funded a set of Harry Potters for each third, fourth, and fifth grade class. This fall, we already had enough profit from the spring book fair to place a set of books in each kindergarten, first and second grade classroom. Kindergarteners will see new Mo Willem’s Pigeon books. First grade classes get copies of. Second grade gets new sets of Junie B. Jones. Thanks to all of our families for supporting the PTA book fair.

Find a Book on Your Lexile!

find-a-book-georgia

From the Georgia State department of Education:

Students are more comfortable when they read texts that match their Lexile level. Using Lexile measures, educators can assign and recommend reading materials that will help students develop stronger reading skills. Parents can use Lexile information to select texts that reinforce what teachers are trying to accomplish in the classroom. It is important to note that the Lexile measure does not address the content or quality of the text. Many other factors affect the relationship between a reader and a text, including its content, the age and interests of the reader, and the design of the actual text. The Lexile measure is a good starting point in the text-selection process, but parents and educators should always consider these other factors when making a decision about which text to choose.

Book titles have been measured on the Lexile scale and can be found under Look up a Book.   Students and parents can access this site to look for books to read inside and outside of school!
