What is your kid reading at?
Ds is in first grade and is at guided reading level E or DRA 6-8. These are the two measures his school uses.

DD just started 1st grade today. She hasn't been tested since last December but at that point she was an E as well.

First grade first month exactly was what mine tested at. I am working hard to improve that but he doesn't like reading at all. Its a struggle. He also didn't understand the testing process very well and now that he understands it I think he would do much better.

not for sure at this point. I know last year they said he was way behind in his reading level(still 8levels behind by end of year). last year his School got him extra help, he went to a special reading class during school and a special phonics class(he talks great) and they also hooked him up with a reading teacher one day a week after school. I continued working with him at home and bought looney tune phonics which was a great help. My son hated reading and spelling, it was torture for him lol, but is doing a lot better now

check out Looney Tune phonics. It costs $10.00 but it helped my son a lot. You get reading levels from preschool to 3rd grade.

No clue but sadly my daughter is in 1st grade and is having a bit of trouble picking up reading. Her dad and I are avid readers and read with her everyday. I hope she gets the hang of it soon.

I'm just happy they are giving him his level books now. Last yr he was given way too easy books and he refused to read them. She said he is technically ahead of E vocabulary wise but she is more concerned with can they answer questions about the story. So she put everyone a lil further behind to make sure they comprehend what they are reading.

One day it'll just click for her. Is she having more issues with sight words or phonetics?

Last year DD was getting level D books because the teacher didn't want her to miss out on that level because it's a fun level. I was fine with that, but then the teacher went on leave for months and the sub was giving level A books. :( 

Today was her first day, so we'll see how it goes this year.
