Use leveled books for reading success

As we all know, children in the same grade or at the same age read at all different levels. Knowing this, it is important to determine each child’s reading level, and also to understand what each child’s instructional level is and what their independent reading level is. Studies show that kids learn best when they are given books that are at their instructional level within a Guided Reading context. It is also very beneficial for kids to have opportunities to read leveled books that are at their independent reading level, which is usually different than their instructional level. leveled books

A leveled book collection should provide plenty of variety. There must be a variety of authors, a variety of styles and topics, a mix of fiction and nonfiction. Readers who experience only one type of book are likely to rely on a smaller range of strategies for decoding text. Children will increase their reading proficiency and their enjoyment of reading by encountering diversity in their reading material.

Children will also benefit from having a range of levels available to them within the leveled book collection. The natural reading process involves reading at their learning edge, and also going back at times to earlier levels to enjoy past favorite books. Many children will also try to read at higher levels because of a particularly interesting story or character, or they may like to have more difficult books read to them. Our selection of leveled books makes it effortless to bring a variety of excellent books to your growing readers.
