Good morning,
I serve a K-5 school.  Lately, I have had a plethora of 2nd grade  students 
selecting books that are way above their interest level and maturity  level.  
Oddly enough, this has nothing to do with the Higher Power of  Lucky, but I can 
see that this will be an issue for that book as well.   Do  you label books 
that are more appropriate for the upper grades?  If so, how  do you label them? 
 This goes against everything I believe in, but this  year I have had little 
or no help and I am not always able to have that  conversation with each and 
every child before they check out their books.   The reason behind all of this, 
is of course, amassing quantities of AR points  (and I won't even go there) 
and girls who think they are wiser beyond their  years.  I have always believed 
that kids are good self selectors.   This year I am beginning to doubt 
whether I am right about that.  If you do  label your books, please let me know 
words you use on your label, and if  there is an interest, I will post a hit.
TIA, and thank you to all of you for what you do for children each and
