Reading Levels

Your child's reading level is measured using the Fountas and Pinnell leveling system.  The system uses letters to indicate how difficult a text is. 

 

This is a good website that explains what the reading levels mean, and gives links to books at each level:

You can also use the Scholastic Book Wizard to find the level of books that you already have:

Your child should read for at least 20 minutes every night, either alone or with someone, in order to become a better reader.  The RAZ Kids app (for iPad/iPhone) is a great place to find books on their level; look in your child's green folder for their login information.
