Do you know how well your child is reading?

Here is a link to a "Red Flag Screening Test for Reading" that you can use to determine what grade level your child is reading at.

Parents can follow the directions given and print copies of various grade level reading assessments, including a state (not Indiana) reading assessment. Directions for scoring are provided.

If the results do not seem to be in line with what you know about your child, or if the results do not seem in line with information you received from your school about your child's reading abilities, then it would be a good idea to schedule an appointment with your child's teacher to discuss it.

Do you know at what level your child is reading?

We are trying to get our kids to NOT end sentences with prepositions! LOL

Okay, I am only a math teacher, but I had always thought that "reading" was a gerund rather than a preposition.
Please help me. What am I missing here?

The title to my original post said "Do you know what level your child is reading at?"

This prompted the comment about ending a sentence with a preposition.

I have changed the title now which has probably confused some people.

I am just glad we have readers!
