Reading Levels Simply Explained
Reading levels can be a mystery to parents. Strategic assessment of word selection, sentence length, and type determine the levels. Different publishing companies have concocted their own categories. Most Ontario teachers use the Fountas and Pinnell Guided Reading Levels as their instructional guide. Scholastic has put together a quick Leveled Reading Guide to correlate the different systems publishers use to sort their books.
