Instructional Level Expectations for Reading

The Instructional Level Expectations for Reading chart is a thinking tool: a way to think about text levels on the F&P Text Level Gradient™.  Across the year, teachers look carefully at where a student is and work to provide the necessary level of support. As a teacher, you need to have a vision for your students’ progress, and we know that this vision can be accomplished more successfully if teachers work with each other. An example of approximate expectations for a year of progress by grade level is shown in this chart.  Expectations can help you and your colleagues meet readers’ needs and support them so that they make optimum progress. This chart is intended to provide general guidelines for grade level goals which should be adjusted based on school/district requirements and professional teacher judgment.

LLI Continuum of Behaviors and Understandings

The following scope and sequence charts provide an overview of behaviors and understandings to notice, teach, and support as children progress through Levels A through N. Each set of charts shows the progression of behaviors and understandings within one aspect of instruction. The four aspects are Thinking within the Text, Thinking beyond the Text, Thinking about the Text, and Letter/Word Work. Thinking within the Text includes searching for and using information, solving words, monitoring and correcting, maintaining fluency, summarizing, and adjusting. Thinking beyond the Text includes predicting, making connections, synthesizing, and inferring. Thinking about the Text includes analyzing and critiquing. Letter/Word Work builds letter-sound knowledge, high-frequency word recognition, and word solving skills. LLI carefully supports children in developing increasingly sophisticated behaviors and understandings in each of these four areas as they progress through the books and lessons at each level.
