I require the students to read two books, at his/her lexile level, each month. Each student will take the Reading Counts comprehension test on the computer and pass with a 70% or better. We check out books from the school library once a week or I have hundreds of books in my classroom that have lexiles that range from 300 to 1200. Please go to www.lexile.com to check the lexile of books at home! It's important for the students to be reading books at his/her appropriate level!
