Clip to ScrapBook #1

So our district is using ISTATION this year. It is new to me, and the thousands of teachers I work with, and I don't know much about it. The kids test monthly unless they are "programmed" to test at a more frequent rate. As a whole class we have 1 hour a week to work on the skills they are struggling with. That being said our library and all classroom libraries are set up through AR. This system does not support these books when the place a child into a "level". In my school we don't do the prizes a pep rallies. We just place students with leveled text according to the STAR tests, this is how they book shop, and this is how we keep a check on their free choice independent reading comprehension. There is always the exception and we teach the SISTERS book choice rules. My issue is does anyone have a conversion for AR? I have over 1,600 books in my CLASSROOM library that I have labeled, dotted, kissed, cried over, cursed, and coveted. I am going to CRYYYYYYYYYYYYY if I have to start over. We may not be using AR in three years but as for now it is THAT far away so that is 3 more years of children being trained to book shop the AR way........fingers crossed.
