Book level matching guidance
For children reading with:
; 96%-100% accuracy (2 or less miscues): The child can read this text independently
and may be ready for the next colour band for guided reading sessions. ; 90-95% accuracy (3-5 miscues): The child can read this text with guidance and
instruction. This is the ideal band for guided reading sessions.
; Below 90% accuracy (6 or more miscues): The child may struggle to maintain an
understanding of this text within a guided reading session and may be better suited
to a lower band.

attempt to read it. Make a note of strategies used to tackle tricky words. ; After reading, ask the child to tell you about the story, or to answer some questions
about the story. Include recall and inference questions.
