Guided Reading Levels

How do you know what grade level your child is reading at?  The answer is to figure out their Guided Reading Level.  Find a book that your child can read all by himself.  Then look up the book on a Guided Reading resource page, such as the following: http://home.comcast.net/~ngiansante/index.html  This will tell you what grade level your child is currently able to read.

The great thing about knowing your child’s Guided Reading level, is that it will help you and your child pick appropriate books.  If your son or daughter is an eager Reader-Beader like Bruce, selecting books at the exact Guided Reading level is fine.  But if you child is an emergent or reluctant reader, choose a level or two below for when your child is going to be reading independently.  Easy success will bring confidence.
