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.
