Book Lists & Recommendations

 

BOOK FINDERS:

  • Lexile.com Students can create their own individual book list. Find the Lexile measures of books, or search for books using a Lexile measure or range.  Use search options, including title, reader interest categories, author, and developmental level.  For independent reading, books 50 Lexiles above to 100 Lexiles below the student’s Lexile measure will help build comprehension skills and acquire new vocabulary.  To build fluency, explore new or difficult subjects, or practice reading skills, students should read 100 to 250 Lexiles below their measure.  Learn All About Lexiles
  • Scholastic Book Wizard - Use the very top Search Bar by Title, Author, or Keyword. Use the drop down menus just below the search bar to select Reading Level System (Guided Reading for Fountas and Pinnell Levels or Lexile), Genre, Subject, or Grade.
