ChristineW Posted October 1, 2012 Share Posted October 1, 2012 DS is in first grade. Reading assessments show that he is reading roughly at a Grade 2 third month level (DRA 18-22; Level L). He's really into reading right now and can gobble a Ricky Ricotta or Roscoe Riley Rules book in a few hours. DS saw 39 Clues at the library and really wants to read it. He says that he read 6 pages in the 20 minutes we were in the library. He definitely retained some of it, but not full comprehension. Is there any harm in letting him try books that are too hard? What would you do? There are some books that I want to wait before I let him tackle because he'd be missing a lot; but for fluff, does it matter?
