I have finally gotten around to the list – sorry, it was quarterly tax time last weekend; so was a little busier than anticipated.  Since there were a ton of hits on Monday — I felt sufficently  guilty enough to jump on this today (Tuesday). So with no further ado; here it is! 

Barefoot Books Titles and the AR (Accelerated Reader) level = books on the list are worth 0.5 points per quiz.

Thanks go to another Barefoot Stallholder (Jennifer A. of Tacoma, Washington) for this list. Jennifer also supplied a telephone number to Renaissance Learning customer service in Wisconsin (parent company of the AR).  Books on the list can be seen & purchased here on my Barefoot Books website; and your school librarian can order them through normal channels for use in your class, along with the quizzes.  Corresponding Activity Sheets for some of the books can be found on the Barefoot sight to expand the visual and kinesthetic learning modes. You can email me or leave a comment for any questions on these  activity sheets. I will go check to see the actual page and then place it here with an edit:    Barefoot ACTIVITY SHEETS <click here for the activity sheets PDFs.

Here are 2 examples:  A) Creepy Crawly Calypso       B) Fun With Thesaurus Rex

Renaissance Learning customer service number (1-800-338-4204) to answer any questions on the AR program.

Our Barefoot Books Spring & Summer 2008 catalog (usually available in late March/early April ) will have many new titles to add to the list. Hope you have lots of fun & success using Barefoot Books in your classrooms!            Ta-Ta! From Talula!
