What A's been reading this year

A has been reading a lot the last few months. At the beginning of the year she asked me to keep a list of everything she reads. I did this once this summer and she was amazed, so I think that is why she asked. Anyway, so far this is what she has read herself since Jan. 1st. I have listed the grade levels next to the ones that I have grade levels on.

We are working our way through Little House on the Prairie right now, taking turns on chapters and so far I think it is one of her favorite books ever. It's grade level is 4.8.

So, anyway, this weekend was a good weekend. A got to spend a great deal of time with both of us and her attitude is so much better. Let's hope it continues through this week. Alright I am off to bed. Lots to do tomorrow. Happy Valentines day everyone.

It's wonderful that she reads so widely and on so many levels. K reads mainly 2nd grade level chapter books and I'm not sure about the level for picture books because they do not come leveled. Some are easy for her, some are not. I should challenge her to read beyond but as of now, she's enjoying reading independently without my help. I would love to go back to taking turns reading again.

Its interesting since our library does not have their books extreamly organized it is hard to find books on the same reading level. So basically she just goes into the kids section and picks what looks interesting, then she heads over to junior section and picks what looks interesting, so an extreamly wide level LOL. She is reading "A Mouse called Wolf" right now that she picked up last week and it is 4th grade level but she is loving it. Having her reading level identified by the psy as mid 4th grade really helped me go ahead and let her grab the books she wanted and let her try them LOL
