Thanks so much for sharing this challenge as well as multiple strategies we can use to improve in this area.
If your students receive lexile scores on any of their assessments, we've discovered that they love to use the Book Wizard to find "just right challenge books" to improve their skills.
Keep us posted on what motivates your students most in this area so we can all continue to improve our practice.
Thank you, Linda! I am definitely going to be updating this topic every once in a while because it is a learning experience for me. Sometimes it is difficult to share a struggle, but other teachers provide absolutely incredible advice. My students CAN use the Book Wizard right from our website, which I can show them. I don't think teachers have discussed Lexile scores with them before, yet they received one this year from FAIR. My highest few were at 1,200+, so I know they can accept great challenges. Those few students already do! - Victoria
