Reading Counts

Hello Parents and Students,

It is very important you are reading books within your level in order to show progression and be able to improve you reading comprehension. Reading books that are too easy or too hard will not afford you the opportunity to progress because the comprehension will either be too easy or too hard. Staying within you range allows you  to increase your lexile while challenging you at a level you can comprehend.

When checking out library books for your reading counts tests, please make sure the books are within you reading lexile level. The books checked out can be within 50 points above/below what your current lexile score is.  I will no longer be accepting scores for books that are not within you reading lexile level.

 

*** Please see me if you need to know what your reading level is and/or if you need help choosing a library book.
