Student Reading Level Chart

Here is a chart to let you see the different reading levels your child is at. Ask your child what their DRA reading level is (that is what we use in our classroom). They should know it! You can take them to the Dearborn Public Libraries and pick out books right at their level. The library will use Lexile level, so make sure you convert the level on the chart.
