Don't know for sure. He's reading above grade level though as of his report card last week.

I don't know. I've never timed her. Is this a thing?

I don't remember the exact number but the teacher sent home his reading levels a few weeks ago. He's advanced for his age/grade level.

Our school does not track that.  They focus on reading comprehension, not speed.

I've never timed a first grader, especially when it comes to reading. It's important that they actually comprehend what they read, not just memorize the words.
