Reading Levels

All books in the school library and most books in the teacher's classrooms are colored coded for the different reading levels:

 

0.1-0.9 kindergarten green

 

1.1-1.9 green

2.0-2.9 yellow

3.0-3.9 red

4.0-4.9 blue

5.0-5.9 red/orange

6.0-6.9 tan

7.0-7.9 white

8.0-8.9 star

 

Spanish books have the same colored stickers and are in the Spanish section.  Ask your child what is their reading level so that they are not reading books that are too low or too high.  Students are encouraged to take an AR quiz after they have read their book to test their reading comprehension.
