Lexile Level 1040L = 6-8th grade "stretched" common core band, not 5th grade...???
Hi Lisa. Thank you for your comment. Lexile is one measure of text complexity. It is also important to consider the subject matter and interest levels of a passage to gauge at which grade level a passage would be appropriate. Please note that we also highly recommend using our reading passages & question sets for both read aloud instruction and independent student reading. Therefore the text complexity of passages varies within each grade and across all grades, as reflected in the Lexile level-grade correlations you'll see on our site. Research shows that exposing students to more complex text through read aloud is vital to increasing vocabulary & background knowledge, and supportive of independent reading.
