We realized too late that the Cobb County Library was not handing out paper logs for summer reading. If you are having a hard time logging into the Scholastic Summer Reading website to log your hours, print out this form instead and start listing your titles. You can return it to us the first week of school and still get recognized for participating! Also don’t forget to check the Summer Reading Program 2017 page for lots more information!
We are in the process of refreshing our blog for the 2017-2018 school year! Check back as we add posts and pages over the summer!
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!
