I understand that Fountas & Pinnell doesn't require assessing reading rates until level J. Does anyone know what the reading rates for a first grader reading below level J should be? Does Heinemann have suggested reading rates for beginning first graders? I know they should be reading at 75 wpm by the end of first grade.

I have done a lot of searching on this topic and I gathered suggested target reading rates from many sources. The consensus I came up with is:
1st grade winter 10-30wpm and spring 30-60wpm. I think 75wpm by the end of 1st grade is quite accelrated.
