This is a screenshot from our library catalog. Search for books and write down the title and call number to find the book in the library. Make sure you check to make sure the book is in. This information is located across from the title of the book on the right hand side of the screen.
If you want to search by the level of the book you can! You can obtain reading levels from your child’s classroom teacher.
Book levels need to be used with caution!
The leveling of books is far from an exact science. If your child makes more than 5 mistakes on one page it is probably too hard.
Ask questions about the story to make sure your child understands what they read.
You can help your child work on acquiring reading speed with the goal of improving fluency. First make sure your child is comfortable reading the page, then select a couple of paragraphs from the text. Set a timer for one minute and let them read as much of it as they can in one minute. Count the number of words they read and the number of errors. Chart their progress with the goal being a reduction of errors and an increase in the amount of words they can read in one minute. I wouldn't do this activity more than three times a week. It should be an entertaining self-challenge. Once they can read over 95 words in one minute with one or less mistakes move on to a different passage. Reading skills grow when modeled. It is important to see family and friends reading.
