New Gators Rock!

Everything you didn't know you needed to know!

Now that things have settled down a little...

I've been wanting to share some info with you "newbies" to our gator family but I know how hectic the beginning of the year is. Please take some time to check out some of the awesome resources we have available to you!

Book Room

In room 231 in the Media Center (the first door on your right when you come in the library) we have a TON of leveled books and videos for you to use. The wall on the right in that room is entirely dedicated to small group and class sets of books.

They are arranged by the letter and each set of books has a label detailing the Lexile Level, Fountas & Pinnel Guided Reading Level (similar to Reading 3D levels), and AR Level.

These sets can be checked out just like library books!

For a complete listing of these books, that you can sort and search, click the link below:
