I have a little girl who is reading at level 17 (bangor testing) which is the goal for the end of first grade. Her mom approached me at open house and asked me what I was going to do for her child because she is such a good reader. This child gets books to take home at her level and we are really working on having her read more fluently and using expressions because she is a very monotone reader. I explained that the books get harder but she needed to prove that she has mastered the level first before she moves on. The mom didn't seem to understand why I wasn't sending home chapter books with her. Any suggestions as to ideas or strategies to try to "challenge" her?
