Classroom teachers use the Benchmark Assessment System (BAS) to find each student's independent, instructional, and frustration level. The instructional level would be the level that teachers are instructing students at in the classroom. Your child's independent level indicates the level in which they are able to read independently with proper fluency and comprehension.
In order to assist in you finding books at your child's independent reading level we are providing you with guided reading book lists. Please use these lists when helping your child choose appropriate books to read at home.
