Do you use the amazing work of Fountas & Pinnell for benchmarking your students' reading levels?
I created these handy hierarchy charts to help you find the right F&P level for your students after assessing them using an F&P running record. Assess and record student reading levels easily by following the flow charts.
If you teach Grade 1, this resource will be doubly effective for you! Each term, there is an average reading level students should be reaching in order to meet the expectations for their grade. In the first page of this resource, you will see a table that breaks students' reading level expectations into 4 key areas:
* Exceeds Expectations
* Meeting Expectations
* Approaching Expectations (short term intervention may be needed)
* Not Meeting Expectations ( intensive intervention may be required)
The levels students need to reach by the end of each term are indicated alongside each Reading Expectation.
You can also laminate this page and use it as an ongoing tracking page to document each student's progress through the 4 key areas. Perfect for keeping your program up to date throughout the year!
Remember, this has been created as a guideline only, using the research of Fountas and Pinnell. Use your own teacher judgement and refer to any school requirements when considering your students' levels.
