My son, 7 in Dec., is reading level 1 easy reader books with little struggle. He can read some level 2 books as well, but is very overwelmed by how many pages or words there are. Is this on grade level? My dd was reading easy chapter books in first so this is really bothering me. He has mastered most of the dolch words and is working in a 2nd grade phonics book. He truly has shown great improvement this year, but I wonder where he would be in a public school as far as grade level is concerned (we homeschool). I just want to add that it took him several years to learn the alphabet and then learned the sounds first over the letter names. He is one the immature side so I always contributed his lack of interest in reading to this. Is he doing okay? Your opinions and comments are appreciated!
