Reading Ladders

At South Jordan Middle we read ALOT. And we use the Accelerated Reader program to monitor and track all of the reading. In order to help my students choose books well, I have created many lists of books I love – all separated by subject and arranged from the easier reading levels to the hardest.

Follow the links below to learn more about each list and see the books I recommend. Because these are specifically for SJMS, I have included the CALL NUMBER for each book, its AR LEVEL and its POINT VALUE.
