Finding the Right Book

Looking for a book that is appropriate for your child’s reading level? Check out this website which helps you search books based on your child’s lexile level: http://www.lexile.com/findabook/ Many schools now use lexile levels to determine an individual student’s reading ability. These levels are measured using reading assessments from a text or program. If you don’t know your child’s lexile level, you can also search based on your child’s grade, interests, and approximate reading level. For a lexile grade conversion chart, click here: http://www.cpschools.com/Schools/HMS/SummerReading/LexileConversionChart.pdf.  For more information about lexile levels and how they are measured, check out this resource: http://www.lexile.com/about-lexile/lexile-overview/.
