“What reading level am I?” “What does that mean?” and “How do I move to the next level?”
These are questions we’ve been asked for years by students and parents regarding reading levels. In response we spent time studying each DRA level (1 – 28), focusing on the particular habits and skills students should practice in order to “move” to the next reading level. We designed student bookmarks that match each level and can be folded in half to provide written/icon directions (on the left side) or icon directions only (on the right side.) The visual icons provide students a “touch” reminder to use during individual reading time at school or at home. Students (and parents) begin to develop a clear “picture” of what is expected of them at that reading level. Teachers can individualize and customize for students with the “tool man icon” word study skills. The theme of magic and movement names (dragons for kindergarten levels, wizards for first grade levels, and magicians for second grade levels) help with motivation and organization. We included the teacher “tools” you might need.
