I've wondered this for a while and just did an internet search. I found some word lists and simple stories to use, they were a little strange though because they would have some harder words in the lower lists and some very simple words in the higher lists (my son is finishing up kindergarten, so by "higher" I mean 3rd/4th grade) Do you use word lists like these, or some other way of determining it? It appears by these lists that he is at an early 1st grade level, which is right were he should be, but I wonder about it because he still sounds out every single word, he doesn't look at words and immediately recognize them except for sight words like I, a, the, etc. so his reading doesn't flow, it's choppy. Is that ok?
