Book Adventure

If you're not sure what book you're looking for, this free site is an easy way to help students develop a list of reading suggestions from over 7000 titles. Search for a grade level and kind of book you would like, search by title, author, ISBN. There is even a 5-finger test to check to see if a book is too hard to read. There is a Quiz-o-matic that provides quizzes on many of the books. Answer correctly and win prizes from the Prize library. Kids, parents, and/or teachers must register and enter the KidZone to have Rex Reader and Bailey Bookmark help you along your BookAdventure.

"My eCoach has been the best tool I have used. eCoach is a user-friendly, time saving, and a universal website. The best part of using eCoach is being able to design a website that enhances learning for students. In such a technology age, 8 and 9 year old students need an outlet for keeping them engaged. My eCoach provides that opportunity for my students, they are able to make the connections with real world applications, use them at school and extend their learning at home. They can talk to each other, share their experiences and what they have learned. What more can we ask for? My-eCoach does it all! "
