Leveling Books to Match Readers -

Steck-Vaughn - 10 pg. booklet titled Guided Reading Leveled Books and
Sets. It doesn't give word counts and uses the following leveling
criteria from Fountas and Pinnell:
Level A = Grade level K
Level B = Grade level K-1
Levels C-H = Grade level 1
Level I = Grade level 1 (late)
Level J = Grade level 2 (early)
Level K-M = Grade level 2 Example: Level L: Carlita Ropes the
Twister and Storms! (Pair-it books)
Level N = Grade level 3
Level O = Grde level 3-4

I also frequently use the following Rigby and Scholastic sources for
leveling information.

Rigby has a leveled list that shows all their different collections. You
can download it from their website (43 pages). In chart form, it gives
the word count, Fountas and Pinnell Guided Level, DRA Level, RR level if
available, or Early Intervention Level if available.

Scholastic's ecatalog is also helpful. It gives Fountas and Pinnell
levels, lexile levels, interest level, grade level reading level, genre,
and a strategy or skill that can be linked to book. should get you to a page where you
can search for a book by title, author, or keyword.
