Table of Contents


Website vs. Reading Level Appropriateness

The following table helps identify the activity or website appropriate for your child.  Use the table a guideline; however, each child is unique and a student may need to move up or down in skill according to their learning style, familiarity with websites and applications, and learning pace.  If you just don't know where to start, begin with the Grade column below as a guide or ask your child's teacher.


Reading Level Grade Comments
Pre and Emergent Reading

Websites typically have sound support.  Most use the mouse or simple letters on the keyboard or arrow keys.
Early Reading and Primer   Some websites have sound support.  If a child is reading, then they will not need assistance.  If they are not reading, they will need assistance.
Transitional and Self-Extending Children can read according to grade level.  They should be able to read the instructions and follow directions themselves.
