Here’s a quick look at the Lexile Framework, which you’ll surely hear about from your child’s teacher. We’ll “talk” more about this in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, take a look at this video from the Lexile people to get you started.

Key Takeaways

  • Lexile Numbers match a reader to reading materials by reading ability – not by age or grade.
  • The reader’s Lexile Range is between 50L above and 100L below their Lexile Number.
  • The Lexile Book Database has books to help you find a match. You can also search our growing KidWrite! Find-a-Book.
  • To search for a book, use the Lexile Number given by your child’s teacher as a starting point.
