Level C Readers
What Can Lola See? is a C leveled reader, based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient. The book is appropriate for Early Emergent readers (Levels A-C). Level C titles typically feature simple characters and colorful pictures that support the printed text. The vocabulary is already familiar to the reader and most pages have just two to five lines of text, with phrases that are repetitive, to help children build confidence as they read. Students reading at level C are able to match spoken words to the printed words with their eyes. Level C readers notice punctuation and begin to use expression and phrasing in their reading as their comprehension skills continue to improve. They understand and can identify a simple sequence of events in the story. Reading at level C, they now have a wider range of high-frequency words and are able to self-correct while reading. Illustrations are still important keys to readers at this level, helping them in the decoding of new words.
Emergent readers (F&P levels D-E, Reading Recovery® levels 5-8) will enjoy Lola and the Frog and Lola’s Lost Collar. The increasing levels of reading difficulty from Early Emergent to Emergent serve to challenge and encourage progressing readers as they want to continue to see what happens to Lola.
