I have heard that LLI kits will be created to extended into grades 3-5. If so, when will they be available?

Additionally, will the lessons differ from the current kits? (time, components of the lesson, comprehension)

I have used the blue kit with 3-5 students and have seen tremendous growth in my students' reading levels, confidence, and attitude toward reading. I would love to see the progress students would be able to make with materials matched to the grade level of the students!

Hello,

Today Gay Su Pinnell and Irene Fountas posted an updated about the development of LLI for grades 3-8 on their blog. You can read the post here: http://www.fpblog.heinemann.com/post/2010/08/09/Update-on-Leveled-Literacy-Intervention-for-Grades-3-8.aspx

More updates on their progress will be posted as development of these new LLI levels progresses.

We hope this helps!

Hi,
I was actually just going to ask someone about this too. I have a student who is in the fifth grade (supposed to be in sixth), and in June (the end of his fourth grade year), he was reading at a mid/end of third grade level. We have some funding coming to us, and looked into purchasing the blue kit, along with the benchmarking system 1 and 2. I was concerned because the blue kit says it only goes up to second grade. The representative on the phone reassured me that you can still use this for students grades 3-5. I just went on the site, and looked at some of the samples, and am concerned that it will be too easy? Feeling a bit overwhelmed, and hoping I am making the right decision. Should I wait for the other one to come out? I also have the GRADE by Pearson. It's not the same thing right? Just don't want to order something too similar. Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.

We have used the blue kit with our 4th and 5th grade students; however, some of the books were quite primary for them. My administrator was able to find funding and purchased the red kit for me to use. This seems more appropriate for the struggling readers that I work with.
