Hi there! LOVING this concept!! We start our school year in 2 weeks and my 7 year old is a late reader. He LOVES to be read TO, but lacks the confidence to actually read, himself. I think that these charts are going to go a long way in helping him. I've downloaded & printed the charts and purchased the books that we didn't already have…and am excited about beginning this project with him. This may've been asked before and if so, I apologize. Is there a way that you would be willing to email a PDF of the spreadsheet you've created, prior to being finished with your posts about charts? I'm finishing up my planning for the entire school year and while I've got a little extra money, I'd like to go ahead and buy titles I don't have (I like to build our library since we have more than one kiddo). If you aren't willing to share at this point, I completely respect that…just thought I would ask. Thank you for this hard work that benefits so many out here in cyberland! 🙂

We are starting chart 5 this week and I noticed that it has a higher reading level than chart 6. Is there any reason for that? We have really been enjoying using the charts and it has REALLY made a difference after struggling through some reading programs. Thanks so much!
I know it’s strange, but if you look at the Lexile, the reverse is true. I tried my best to balance the Lexiles and the Reading Levels on each chart. 🙂

Thanks, Amy! I need to do more research on lexile vs. reading level. Again, I appreciate you!
