    They encourage students just to read wider and of course for enjoyment once they hit L20.

    Ok, this hasn't been the case at our school - my child is in kindergarten (first year of school) and reading level 26, as sent home by teachers (home reader)

    As long as she still enjoys it, reads fluently and comprehends it I can't see a huge problem. I had a child just borrowing books from library in yr 1 once and that worked okay.

    My Ds1 just turned 7 but he has been reading since he was 2.

    Please don't worry too much about the level. It's the understanding that is most important later on.
    Ds1 is on a high level but he doesn't understand what he is reading.
    But if I give him level 20-28 he does.

    My DS has just turned 7 and his readers don't seem to have a level now. His readers are chapter books? He is well above where he should be for his age with reading though.

    My year one child has just completed a literacy support program at school and has come out of it being able to read basic chapter books (like Billie.B.Brown). I think she said she reads a level 16 at school. We don't do home readers at home really, I find once they can read at a level that are like small chapter books they get more enjoyment out of reading something that interests them.

    My oldest child was behind her peers at the end of year one...but now she's in year 3 in a 3/4 composite and is one of the best readers in her class.

    I have found with my kids that they were a bit slower than average to grasp reading the words, but they've always had really good comprehension skills.

    My year two DS has just turned 8 and is reading chapter books - roald Dahl, the treehouse books, diary of a whimpy kid, the newspaper etc. He stopped readers half way through year one and had gone on to smaller chapter books and no longer does school readers as of this year. Fortunately of unfortunately I'm never quite sure his comprehension is well above where he needs to be.

    DD had finished the 30 levels and was reading her own books alone such as Harry Potter at 6.

    DS who is bright but not gifted is 7 (year 1) and on level 25 I think. The expectation is to hope students have reached level 30 by the end of Year 2. For the end of Year one they hope they are at level 19.

    My DD1 has just turned 7.

    By the end of kinder she was easily reading books between level 20-25.

    She is now onto reading small chapter books instead of home readers.
