Coding My Scholastic Order with AR Levels

Coding my library with AR levels

This post is all about coding Scholastic orders with AR levels. Please reassure me that I am not alone. When I pass out my monthly book orders for Scholastic, I am just filled with eager expectation that I’ll have at least two parents buy! For the month of January, I had five parents buy pretty big orders. On top of that, I also purchased a fairly large order. When you put our two totals together, my Bonus Points were HUGE!!!

Bonus Points Payout

So, last month, I put in a fairly large order. My parent sales were high, and my order was about $75. I also used about 2,000 of my saved up bonus points because my kiddos were just needing some new books. After all was said and done, since I ordered by January 31st and my order was over X amount of dollars, I got $30 to spend for my classroom right then and there!!

Here is my stack of books before I started them. What is awesome is that there are TONS not pictured! There were far too many for this picture!

Here are a few of my new favorites. I got Pete the Cat Valentine’s Day is Cool, Snowmen All Year, Snowmen All Night.

In my Scholastic book haul, I also got two sets:  the Old Lady, fractured fairy tale sets, Fly Guy, and Elephant and Piggie. My kids love all four of these series.

Now it’s time to start putting A.R. labels on the books. I have a lot of work ahead of me.

Here I go… Starting to put into piles to start pulling to research. Use to get the AR number and the reading level of the book.

This is an image of what you’ll get on the website. It’ll give you lots of information, such as the AR score, the quiz number, the rating, the reading level, and more.

I also use these stickers on the front of my books for the book bins. Each book gets a colored dot on the front of the book to help in sorting. The kids are very responsible with my system. These are my book bins if you have not seen my post on those yet! Book bins are essential for coding Scholastic orders with AR levels.

I write the AR number on the inside of the book. This is for the students to type in when they want to take a quiz. Then on the colored dot on the front, I write the AR level.

I then made a huge stack on the top of my book bin shelves and told the kids if you finish morning work first tomorrow, you can be the helpers to sort these into their bins. Maybe that’ll actually get them working with a sense of urgency. I hope this post gives you some ideas about coding Scholastic orders with AR levels.
