Lexile

Lexile.com is a great website for finding reading material. The Lexile range for 5th grade is 700-980. This range is just a guide. The Lexile number of a book is calculated using many factors such as sentence length and vocabulary. If your child is reading a book that is outside of the range, that book is fine so long as it captures his or her interest. This site functions best as a resource for finding reading material that is appropriate for your child's current reading level. If you find that books in a particular range are too difficult, simply decrease the range you are searching under. In addition, you can search for reading material based on your child's interests or by author. You can also look up the reading level of any book. The website is user friendly and contains a complete explanation of the Lexile Measures.
