Library Links

Alabama Virtual Library

Great for students to research topics such as weather or biographies.  Safe for students. Free access. I can’t say enough about why parents and students should start here for research first before using google.  I also love the image section for printing photos and pictures for a project. No worries about a child seeing an inappropriate image!

Common Sense Media

This website is one to bookmark!  I love to use this as a guide on parent reviews, grade level suggestions, etc.  Parents really need to check this one out.

Educational activities that promote reading

Hoover Public Library offers a lot of free events monthly.  Check out their calendar.

Funbrain

Kids will find loads of arcade-type games, math games, comics, and web versions of popular books such Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  Games are grouped by type and grade.

Scholastic Book Wizard

This is a tool for finding grade level equivalent and their guided reading levels.  I like the featured author section and videos to get kids excited about books.
