    Hi Friends,

    I was just wondering what reading level your kinders need to be at by the end of the year? What about the end of first grade? We use the DRA in Florida, but it seems like our kids are pushed so hard so fast. I was just wondering if states that in the higher rankings are pushing their kids on in the same manner...

    I love, love, LOVE that my current school district only had letter/sound and print-awareness requirements for the end of Kindergarten. In fact, they do have suggestions in K and 1, but really leave it until the middle of 2nd before they start getting firm about them. They offer help if a kid needs it, but also know that it is not developmentally appropriate for every child to be reading at XX at the end of K.

    Our kids need to be at DRA 4 by the end of kindergarten. We are a full day, title one school. It is a real push for most kids.
