Level D

What are some indicators of a Level D text?
  •  Longer, more complex stories

  •  Some pound sentences conjoined by "and"

  •  Simple plot but may include several elaborate episodes

  •  Topics are familiar, but may include abstract or unfamiliar ideas

  •  Text layout is easy to follow, but font size may vary

  •  Texts range from ten to twenty pages

  •  Pictures begin to extend meaning of text

  •  New punctuation may be included (dashes, ellipses)

  •  Larger number of high frequency words/greater variety

  •  Includes more word endings, compound words and multi-syllable words

  •  More opportunities for decoding words with familiar patterns.

How do I know if my child is a Level D reader?
  • Read fiction and simple nonfiction

  •  Continue to follow text with eyes, rather than pointing

  •  Read text with fewer lines of repeated words

  •  Read compound words (ex: newspaper, sandbox) and words ending in -ing.

  •  Continue to correct reading mistakes

  •  Read easy, high frequency words --  (at, am, an, do, go, he, in, like, me, my, no, see, so, to, up, we.)
