The following indicators illustrate a way to describe
grade-level achievement for readers:

*At the end of kindergarten;
Children should be able to write in a left ro right manner, have a firm grasp of letters and their sounds, and recognize a few simple words.

*By the end of first grade;
Students should be using and integrating phonics and reading strategies as they read, writing simple stories, reading independently, and demonstrating comprehension of stories through drawing, writing, discussion, and dramatization.

*By the end of the second grade;
Students should be reading silently for extended periods and reading orally with appropriate use of punctuation. They should demonstrate that they can gather information by reading, predict how stories will end, and compare and contrast story elements, sequence events, and relate what they read into their lives.

*By the end of the third grade;
Students should be able to select books appropriate to their reading levels and interests, recognize when errors interface with meaning and correct themselves, and exhibit higher order thinking skills in analyzing text.

*By the end of the fourth grade;
Students should be able to read orally with appropriate expression, locate materials appropriate to a topic, use graphic aids to locate and interpret information, and analyze text in a variety of genres.
