Leveled Book List summer

Leveled Book List
The following books are listed from easy to difficult by
reading levels and can be found at www.amazon.com or Barnes
and Noble. Books that are “just right” for your child will be the ones on their level.
To build fluency, have your child read books on an easier level. Books above your
child’s level will be too difficult. However, a child’s listening level is usually 2-3
grade levels above their reading level. If your child is reading at a first grade level,
they can listen and comprehend books at a third or fourth grade level. Reading
aloud to your child will help challenge students by introducing them to more
sophisticated vocabulary and increasing their cognitive skills. In addition, reading
together is a great time for parents to bond with their children and will provide
opportunities for meaningful discussion. It will become a time you and your child
look forward to each night! Remember; don’t restrict your child’s reading material
to only books. Provide the chance to read other types of materials (magazines,
comics, newspapers, atlases, recipes, game instructions, etc.). This will allow them
to discover several reading materials of interest.
