My class has finally finished their Star Reading tests so we are ready to get AR started. I was able to take my kids to the library in small groups and show them how to use Destiny Quest (computer search) to find books or subjects they were interested in and that were on the AR level. I was also able to show them how to narrow their search by author, book level, award winning, etc. I briefly showed them how to use the advance search but honestly, second graders won’t be using that feature very much!
We also went through a “refresher” on how to check books in/out and what information they needed to bring to the library with them whenever they came (they have their individual levels on “library cards” they take with them).
