While interest can sometimes trump ability and allow students to read a book series above their current reading level, students should not be reading a book series below their reading level to earn the Blast Off badges. Therefore, the book series lists are divided into reading levels that roughly correspond to grade level. Students should verify with their teacher which color level they should choose from when picking a book series. Students should then use the book marks for their chosen book series (available in the library or online) to know which books to complete to earn the Blast Off Badge. Although some books are available in the Armstrong library, participating students would need to find the books of the series on their own at the public library or an appropriate book store.
Use the grade-level lists below to choose an appropriate book series. Or, use the alphabetic index of all book series to find the one you’re looking for. Don’t see the series you’re looking for, let us know what it is, and we’ll get it added to the choices. In the meantime, make your own bookmark with the help of your teacher and this template.
