Guided reading level

Clip to ScrapBook #8

My GR books are leveled from publishers.

But the books kids choose as just right/good fit are not leveled (hundreds of books). A few years ago I sorted all these books into 3 categories. Easiest ones have green sticker on front and are kept in baskets with green stickers on label. They probably are levels A to D. Next group have red label and range E to I. My blue sticker books (J and above, including most chapter books) make final group.

By the time kids are ready to select their own books, I have good idea about their reading levels. I direct them to appropriate color baskets. Then they use 5 finger process to find good fit books for themselves.
