Core Competencies In Reading.

For this core competency I am using the Lexile framework for two really important reasons. 

The lexile scale is developmental, not based on grade level. 

This means the scale is appropriate to your child's reading level and does not match them against arbitrary grade levels or 'where they should be for their age'.  Lexile measures make it easy to track growth and progress of your child over time.

Lexile matches text complexity or difficulty with reader level or ability.

Lexile scans millions of books and gives them a Lexile score.  This enables you to find a book which matches your child's reading abilities. When a child has a Lexile measure,  parents can personalise learning by matching their children with more than 100 million articles, books and websites that have Lexile text measures.
