What is your child's favorite book? Help another parent, leave a suggestion in the comments!
I LOVE 'playing librarian.' If you've been to HEROES, you've seen our library. It's on the small side - with just about 1,000 books BUT I've read every single one of them! This makes it both easy and fun to recommend books to both students and parents. I send more than half of our students home with a new book to read every 1 - 2 weeks! When students take our placement test, I'm able to pinpoint almost exactly what they SHOULD be reading. I'm also able to tell what they ARE reading. These two criteria don't always match and it can be detrimental to student reading growth. So, what SHOULD your child be reading? Well, the answer is both simple and complicated.
