We encourage everyone to select books by Reading Level instead of Grade or Age. You wouldn't buy your student a shoe based on grade, you'd have them try on different sizes. The same with books, we encourage you to find books that fit your student's reading level. If you'd like to use a student's grade level, here's a great place to start. (Scroll down for full chart) Please remember your student's ability and interest can easily cross into levels slightly above and below their assessment or age.
One other quick note. If you're wondering why some picture books are in middle grade reading levels, or some graphic novels are in the lower grade levels, remember that we group titles by the difficulty of the text. Some picture books have lots of text and more difficult words, many graphic novels focus on the drawings with little or simple text. The most important aspect is for kids to find books they're comfortable with and then start challenging them to improve!
