Qld Reading Levels

I know for the early readers it went to 30 before then going onto another level program for the older kids.
I'd be happy if my child could bring home the right level as the teacher lets them change their own! I'm wondering if I should volunteer to change them for her as we used to have parents change ours when I was teaching.

Around 30ish and after that they read 'real' chapter books (according to my 7 year old )

The levels can depend on the brand/series of readers that are used.

In QLD- the top level is level 30.
Kids are expected to be at level 20 by the end of grade two.

Ds got to level 9 by the end of Prep. He started at level 9 this year (yr 1). Then went straight to level 11. There are 3-4 kids who are on a higher level than him.

It always fluctuated by about 5-6 levels each year as to what the top level at the beginning of year one was. ie. Some years there would be kids starting on level 12, other years level 16/18.
At work the levels used to be passed on by the previous teacher in order to start the readers at the beginning of the year and then it was a continuous process at any spare moment to benchmark each child and shift their level if appropriate or chase why they weren't progressing and assist if that's what was happening. Each child was benchmarked at least 4-5 times a year, sometimes moving by one level and other times by several levels.
Keep in mind that the homereaders should be 2 levels below their instructional level in school. They are to help cement what they have learnt - not a whole lot of new learning. Depending on the amount of text in a book and level as to how many new words they may come across and practise their decoding skills on. For example, a L6-8 reader may have up to 5 new words.
