Using Your Personalized Bookshelf

Using Your Personalized Bookshelf

The personalized bookshelf is your LevelUp homepage. From now on, every time you log in to LevelUp you are taken to this page.

Your bookshelf is filled with many small pictures that show the covers of the books that have been chosen for your reading level. The text underneath each picture tells you the name of the book, what its reading level is, and whether it is fiction or nonfiction. Use this information to decide which book you’d like to read, and click the cover image to open it and start reading. 

There are over 2,000 books on LevelUp, but don’t feel overwhelmed. The books on your bookshelf have been sorted into different categories, such as “Arts and Crafts,” ”Science,” ”Sports and Fun,” “Civics and My Community,” and others to help you find one that you want to read. 

Your teacher might also assign a book for you to read or a running record assessment to take. You can find that book or assessment on the row labeled “My Assignments.” If you start to read a book but don’t finish it, or if you leave a book before taking the quiz at the end, the book will be moved to the row called “Continue Reading.” You’ll be able to find it there next time you log in to LevelUp. Running records must be completed once you start them, so they will not appear in “Continue Reading.”

If you really like a book, or if you think you might want to read it again sometime, click the heart that appears beneath it to save it to your favorites. At the top of the bookshelf, just under the LevelUp logo, you will see an icon labeled My Favorites. Click this icon to open a page where all of the books you’ve chosen as favorites appear. If you change your mind and want to remove a book from your favorites, just click the heart again and it will no longer be on the page. 

Click the icon labeled Bookshelf next to My Favorites to go back to your main bookshelf.

Next to Bookshelf and My Favorites is an icon labeled My Reports. If you want to know more about your LevelUp activity, click this icon to open a page that shows your current reading level, how many books you’ve read this week, how many books you’ve read in the entire time you’ve spent on LevelUp, and how many LevelUp Land stars you’ve earned.
