      • Print handouts from "Lexile Resource Kit"
      • Check out the lexile book database, analyzer, calculator 
      • Become familiar with the power vocabulary list feature on the tools menu

    • Create a report showing your student lexiles and share the report with your teachers and administrators
    • Make sure you are regularly running your Alexandria item lexile utility
    • Print out the lexile chart on the Library Services website and share with your teachers and administrators
    • Teach kids how to use the Alexandria Researcher to find books in their lexile range
    • Use Alexandria Researcher to generate lexiled lists on certain topics that you can print and have ready to share with your students
    • Print out the lexiled summer reading lists on the Library Services website and have them on hand to help students locate books in their lexile range. Give the list to the kids to keep in their library folders or have several printed out and laminated for students to use only when they are in the library
    • Mark the books so that the students can locate books in their range.
    • If your books are color coded for AR, then makes a translation chart for lexiles (this is just a general guideline) so that they know what color to look for.
