To find AR Books:
There is a website that parents, students, teachers, and librarians can visit to find books they may be interested in reading. The website’s address is : http://www.arbookfind.com/default.aspx
If, for example, one wanted to search books by a certain author, he could enter that author’s name in the search bar. Searches can also be done by topic or specific title.
Whenever specific books look interesting, the user can click on an icon that says, “Add to AR BookBag,” and the title(s) will be accessible at the end of their search session. They can then print out a list of the titles. If they don’t have a copy of the titles, they can contact the school or the classroom teacher to see if we have it or if we are needing it as well.
Also, the AR BookFind uses various codes to explain the types of quizzes that are available with a specific book, as well as what book level it is. Users simply need to click on the “?” box for an explanation of these codes.
Because we have Renaissance Place, we do have access to all of the AR quizzes.
Parents can also contact me via email with a question they might have as a result of a search.
