In the news...
TJHSST will hold its annual Techstravaganza on Saturday, April 11, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It is day full of hands-on activities, demonstrations, and fun for the whole family. I have attached links to our flyers in English and Spanish with information on the day. Please share with your students and anyone else that would benefit from this opportunity.

You can find titles of books based on DRA levels 1-38.
Teacher Book Wizard: http://www.scholastic.com/bookwizard
This is the Scholastic Book Wizard site. Choose how to level books (AR level, DRA level, F and P level, etc.) and type in the title or author into the search engine to yield results.
Leveled Book Lists: http://home.comcast.net/~ngiansante
While this site uses Fountas and Pinnell levels, not DRA levels, it does sort book titles by grade level.
