Sorry about all these back to school posts but I was wondering what PM benchmark your year 1 child is on? DS has just started year 1 at a new school ( same state) They asked me to find out his PM benchmark for reading from the old school and I have just found out it was only level 1!!! I though across the board it is a minimum of about 5? I am not happy at all that I was not informed of this last year. I expressed some concerns as I knew DD was much better at reading then he was in the same year and was told not to worry.
