Importance of reading

Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference in a child’s educational performance. Children who read EVERY DAY not only perform better on reading test than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary and increase of general knowledge. Let’s encourage everyone to READ, READ, READ!!
 

Learn More About Lexile 

Reading text that is hard to comprehend can be very challenging. Students should read nonfiction and ficion books that are on their reading level or slightly above. Lexile scores are a way of measuring the student's reading level. Ask your teacher for your Lexile score, then go to https://lexile.com/  to learn more.
