The Phenomenal Student: Reading Level

Reading is the foundation for student success.

The Phenomenal Student: Reading Level

When I originally put together The Phenomenal Student rating scale, Reading Level wasn’t a set apart rating. But after some thought, I decided to add it for several reasons.

1. The ability to read at grade-level is the foundation for every student’s academic success.

2. Most learning disabilities are tied to a child’s inability to read.

3. It’s an excellent indicator as where the child stands in their development.

My rubric for Reading Level is straight-forward. If a child is a grade-level reader, they get a 7. Why only a 7? I’ve found that if a child ends the year at grade-level, they normally come into the next year slightly below grade-level. (Kids don’t read as much over the summer.)

If a child is slightly below grade-level, they get a 6. And if they’re three grade-levels or more ahead, they get a 10.

Over the next few months, I’ll share strategies to help students become more proficient readers.
