*ELOs that are done independently

  
    Your child's independent level will be determined by an Oral Reading Record, individual student-teacher conferences, and during small group reading. Students should be able to read 95% of the text independently, without instruction. Students will make the most progress in reading when given the opportunity to read independently at their individual reading level.
