This is my first year in first grade, and I was just wondering what level my students should be at right now? What fluency rate would be good or average at this time during the year. I was administering our state's reading inventory today, and found that one of my students is reading at 7 wpm at his instructional level. The reading inventory that we use has five stories. Story 1 is the easiest, and story 5 is the most difficult. According to the inventory he needed to be assessed on story 2. He decoded almost all of the words on the story but very slooowly. At the same time, I have about 8 students reading story 5. Could anyone give me an idea of where my kiddos should be? What can I do to help my 7wpm student? They recently found that he is dyslexic. Any ideas will help. THanks!
