Reading Leveled Books!


    If you want to find out the level of a particular book, you can use Scholastic Book Wizard:

    1. Search “Scholastic Book Wizard” in your browser or go to https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/bookwizard/
    2. In the search bar, enter the title of the book.
    3. Under the drop down list for Reading Level System, choose “Guided Reading Level”.  
    4. Many books are leveled already, but some are not leveled and might be listed as N/A.  In this case, you can use the Five Finger Rule outlined below or try looking for a book that is leveled


    If you don’t know the level of a book, your child can use the “Five Finger Rule”:

    0-1 mistakes/ unknown words = too easy

    2-3 mistakes/ unknown words = just right

    4 mistakes/ unknown words = okay to try

    5+ mistakes/ unknown words = save for later
