Getting Started


Readola doesn't require weeks of specialized training for your staff. Save precious classroom time with a true turn key program utilizing off the shelf (literally) materials. No extra purchases necessary for textbooks, workbooks or online readers.

One of the most important steps to getting the most out of Readola is to create your Reading Roadmap. Reading Roadmaps are a kind of wish list - a list of books a student wants to read. As students progress in aptitude, Reading Roadmaps are updated with titles from higher reading levels.


  1. Create your profile.
  2. Build your own Recommended Reading Roadmap from the Blue Ribbon Awards Collection. Then help your students build theirs.
  3. Make sure to click the box to make your list public so students and families can explore your Roadmap (a classroom recommended reading list).
  4. Do your students know their Lexile reading levels? Total Reader offers free assessments. There are conversion charts for other reading level assessments.
  5. If you choose, you can communicate the link to your classroom community.
