5th and 6th Grade Library Info!

How to ensure student success in the library.

Welcome to the Library!

You each have chosen assigned times that I have blocked out for when you need to bring the entire class to the library. If you are coming simply to check out books and take AR quizzes, I am always prepared for that. However, if you have a specific lesson that you'd like for me to give or if there is a particular research need, please let me know so that I can plan for it. If you can give me a day or two, I can have an organized lesson for your students. For example, if you're want to reinforce a lesson on The Harlem Renaissance, let me know and I can put something together for you.

Just shoot me an email- slhicks@caddoschools.org


Please send your students down at any time so that they may check in and check out books and take AR quizzes. Your students are generally mature enough to do this and it worked very well last year. I provided passes for each 5th and 6th grade teacher several weeks ago. If you need more, let me know.


You can get to the AR page through Destiny. Click AR/STAR tests under the Accelerated Reading heading and then select "I'm a Teacher/Administrator". Your login should be the same if you had a password last year. If not, it's your first initial and last name for both Username and Password. For example, mine would be shicks for both.

Once you're in, you can find AR level information and STAR testing results by clicking the blue button and going to reports. Select either the Diagnostic or Summary.

If you are looking for data on quizzes and progress, click the orange button and go to reports.

You will be receiving more information through an upcoming Wednesday Work Sessions, but please feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
