What Reading Levels ARE For and What They're NOT For

Sharing reading levels with parents has become a controversial issue.

My personal belief is that this is valuable information, as it can help parents select books their child will be most likely to experience success with.
As a parent, I always wanted access to any information that could be relevant to how I could support my child's learning!

This FREE Parent Handout clarifies what reading levels are, how they ARE meant to be used, and how they ARE NOT meant to be used.

After sharing such information with parents, I believe it's best to provide their child's reading level each time it is assessed. 

I hope you find this parent letter useful. I'd love to hear your thoughts on sharing reading levels with parents, if you'd care to comment!

Thanks, Anne Gardner (National Board Certified in Literacy)
