The color-coded levels can be associated with the grade levels below, HOWEVER, they are very flexible and will often overlap grades.
With flexibility in mind:
• Level 1-Kindergarten
• Level 2-1st Grade
• Level 3-2nd Grade
• Level 4-3rd Grade
• Level 5-4th and 5th Grade
The DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) assessment and curriculum guide were used as the basis for this Reading Skills Step Ladder.
