Common Core Performance Coach from Triumph Learning is what we are using in class as a resource to help prepare the students for the ELA and the Math tests. The Crosswalk Coach is also a good one. You can access a sample online by going to their website.
READING and LEXILE LEVELS:
Could the book my child wants to read be too difficult for my child? The five-finger test is a quick way to assess the difficulty of a book. Have your child read a page of the book, and if your child has difficulty pronouncing or understanding 5 words off of that page, most likely the text is too difficult. Although reading a challenging text is good for most students, if the student is unable to read and understand the text it defeats the purpose. Fluency and comprehension will improve when children read books that are the right fit for them.
