Understanding your child's reading level
One last thing to remember, no matter what "level" your child may be reading, make sure your child is exposed to a wide range of reading materials. Let your child re-read easy books to build confidence and understanding of print. Read aloud harder materials to your child. Let your child try to read things that may appear to be "too hard" for them. Even if they only read the parts they know, they are being exposed to wonderful new things. Children will notice so many more things about text, words, syllables, punctuation, etc. when they move beyond the early text levels. Most of all, have fun reading with your child. Reading at home should be enjoyable!
