a MUST have for classroom library. It allows you to use your smart phone and scan the bar code on your classroom books and then it inputs all of the info for you on a FREE data base. It allows you to let kids scan out the books and check out and check in them, separate them by reading levels and even put down their location in your class room. Did I mention it's FREE!?!?
Book Retriever - This app allows you to scan, level and inventory your entire classroom library. Leveling choices include Guided Reading Levels, Lexile, Accelerated Reader, Reading Counts, DRA and Reading Recovery.
Good readers are good writers. Reading and writing go hand in hand so I feel that having an extensive organized classroom library with books to interest all students at every reading level is important for fostering literacy development in the classroom.
