Leveled Text Guide

This document provides parents with the instructional level expectations per grade level for grades K-8. While this is a guide, remember all children grow and delvelop at different rates.  Just as there are no "exact times" for physical development - when children sit up, take their firts steps and say their first words, the reading process also develops differently for each child.  If you have questions or concerns about your child's reading level, please ask to speak with your child's classroom or SMILE teacher.
