Helping Your Child Find "Just Right" Books and Media
Are you concerned with the books your child is choosing?  A fellow Adamsville parent shared this fantastic site with me which gives you some control over what your child is reading:  http://www.commonsensemedia.org/
Once you register, you can look up titles to see reviews and browse reviewed titles based on your child's age.  Not only does this give you a break-down of what the book or media is about, but it will also give you talking points for discussing the book or topics that are relevant to it.  This is a remarkable resource for parents that should not go overlooked!

 

 

 

Converting Reading Levels

There are many different measures of reading levels.  Here is a helpful chart to help you make sense out of what you learned at conference time!  Use the chart to help your child search for E-books on my E-book page that correspond to the correct reading level for reading practice time.  You can also use this information to search for just right books using Destiny, our Library Catalog.

Volunteering:
 
The library really needs volunteers!!!  If you are available during the week, why not donate an  hour or so to the
school library?  Tasks include checking in/ checking out books, shelving materials, repairing materials, and
helping children select books.  Training is included in the experience!  Not to mention, you'll  be able to see the
latest and greatest in children's literature!
