How do I check the book level my student is reading?
At the beginning of the year we have students tested on their comprehension and fluency, using our Fountas and Pinnell series. Students were given a letter level that is independent (a book they can read fluently and comprehend) and a level that is instructional (a book they will struggle with, either with fluency, comprehension, or both).
If you have a book at home and you are wondering what "letter level" the book is at, then you can follow the link below and check the "Guided Reading Level"
This link allows you to search a wide variety of books and their levels, both Guided Reading and Lexile.
