Skyview students’ requirement of daily reading logs keeps our library books moving off the shelves.  Students may read books of any reading level but are required to test on one that is in their Lexile range.  Lexile scores are given to books based on their readability.  Skyview’s Homework Help page contains a link to Scholastic’s quiz search engine.
