I was wondering what reading level your K child is at mid year. My son is at level 2-3, and his teacher says he is on target with everyone else!

I have no clue what level my son is at.  He's in kindergarten and is currently reading the Flat Stanley chapter book to me.

When my son was in kindergarten he was reading at a 1st grade reading level. He is now in first grade and is reading at a 3rd grade level.

Mine's reading at a second grade level.  I think that she's advanced though.  I don't know what level 2-3 is.  DD is able to read chapter books.  She can read whatever she wants at this point.

I don't know, mine hasn't been tested. To my knowledge they are not testing reading levels in kindergarten at his school. But, he can read most of the kid books we have around here.

 I have no idea my dd's school doesn't do levels, at least that I am aware of.  She is reading to me many different books though.

I have no clue what reading level DD is at. But they are all doing what is called repeated reading ( Parent reads , then child repeats what parent read to them). DD knows the,is,in,to,into,his,her,him,she,a,and,it so far on her own. Her reading home work did consist of the repeat reading, drawing a picture for a couple of months. Now its repeat reading, drawing and writing a sentence.DD only knows how to spell yellow independently. They just started reading homework only a couple months ago literally so I am thinking the spelling will help them to read better/quicker idk. DD's books are letters A-Z its about things that start with said letter then it has two paragraphs about all of the things in the book. But very impressed that my DD has the finger spacing thing down when she writes lol too cute.

My son is in Kindergarten & reads at an 'end of 1st grade' level. My daughter is in 1st grade and reads at a 'beginning of 3rd grade' level. I think her teacher is a little off, since DD has been reading Harry Potter at home lol.

Not sure what his reading level is in K.  Teacher never told us the exact score and we never asked at the P/T conference.  We gauge his abilities against his sisters' when they were his age.  People say boys are less advanced than girls in K but he seems to be strong with his academics, particularly in the mathematical and critical thinking areas.  He is just so shy that we are concentrating on social skills this year.
