Guided Reading Level for Conferences

Do you tell parents their child's guided reading level (Fountas & Pinnell)? If so, do you show them a chart for what's appropriate for the grade level? Some teachers are doing that in my school.

Yes, I do tell parents their child's reading level. We use DRA2 and I provide them with a chart to show them where they are and what level is grade level.

Yes, the expectation for each grade level (K-5) for each marking period is printed on the report card, and then each child's independent level is also printed on their report card. At the conference I also have a chart that I show the parents that outlines where we expect their child to be at the end of the year, if they continue on their current "track".

Share Reading Level and Current Expectation

I share detailed information about each student at their conference.

This includes their current DRA (Reading) level, as well as the "benchmark" or expectation for this time of year. In addition, I try to have (or write up with the parent/child) a goal for reading, writing, and math.

I've attached an example of the sort of sheet I prepare for each conference. The sheet serves as the "agenda" for the conference, and I walk parents through all of the information I have about their child currently, etc.

The information changes, depending upon what data I have collected (sometimes there are 2 sets of writing scores, sometimes only 1, etc.)

I also take a few minutes at the end of the conference to talk about social/behavioral concerns.

Yes, we even send home a computerized report with each report card showing their latest reading and math level scores. Parents need to be aware if their child is below grade level!

We do student-led conferences, and my kids share their instructional (GR) lever as well as the grade level equivalent. They also share how they have grown throughout the year. Parents want and need to know if their child is below/on/above level. We also share Lexile levels so parents can help their kids choose appropriate books at an independent level.

Yes, I do. I think its important to tell them especially if they're reading below grade level.

We give out that information and show parents where their child should be at this point in time. Our new principal is also asking that we work that into their grade in some way. That is what I am trying to figure out. If anyone has a method they use to assign percentages or grades based on reading levels, will you please share?!
