    • How to search the online card catalog by reading level



    Find the Fountas and Pinnell to ATOS conversion using this chart.

    Go to OPALS (http://hds.sllboces.org or go to the school homepage, click on Library then click the OPALS link).

    Mouse over the Search bar and choose Lexile/FP/AR/RC.

    Click the Accelerated Reader tab.

    Fill in the information you want to search by.

    The reading level is based on school year and month – for example, 4.3 is 4th grade, 3rd month. 0 is kindergarten. If you want to search just for a single number, fill it in both the first and the second box (4.3 to 4.3, for example).

    Books with a call number of E are picture books. Books with a call number starting with JUV FIC are likely to be chapter books. Any book without an E or a prefix of JUV is on the high school side.
