This past week I have been busy helping a friend, who is a teacher, level her books for her classroom. I learned that leveling books is a useful tool for the children as is helps when learning to read when to move from one book "level" to another. I used my Cricut to label all of her books with the alphabetical letter to correspond with the level of the book. Scholastic has a website that helped me find what level the books were at by entering in the name of the book or the author. The books are now easy for the children to visually find what level they can read at and are easy to put back on the shelf when done.
To do this I made the letters using mostly All Mixed Up with the exception of a few that I thought might be hard for the kids to read, those I used Opposites Attract. I made the letters at 1 7/8" and backed them with the Shadow Blackout circle on the All Mixed up cartridge cut at 2" I used the paper saver mode and was able to cut 49 of them on a 12 X 12 sheet of black card stock. I then ran them through my Xyron sticker maker and attached them to the appropriate books. They are now easy to sort and easy to find. Great tip for teachers and parents too!
