Today is Do a Grouch a Favor Day!
If you're not sure what kind of favor your grouch might like, you could come in and check out a book or DVD to see if you can get any good ideas.

Is there a test on this???

We get student (and parent) questions on “RC” Reading Counts tests each day:

“Does this book have a test?”
“Will this book qualify?”
“I need a book with an 800 Lexile score so I can take a test.”

The best resource (and the one WE use) is the Hesston Middle School Library’s website: http://ms.hesstonschools.org/library.  There you can search books to see if they have a “RC” test or find their Lexile score.
