About Spanish Lexile® Measures for Reading
Spanish-speaking children are now the second-largest student population enrolled in U.S. public schools. However, it can be challenging to measure progress and find appropriate reading materials for children whose first language is Spanish.
El Sistema Lexile® para Leer is a reading framework for Spanish readers and text. Just like the Lexile® Framework for Reading, you can use your child’s Spanish Lexile measure to find “just right” Spanish reading materials. Search for Spanish and bilingual books at your child’s reading ability by selecting the “Books in Spanish” toggle located on the top, right corner of our Lexile® Find a Book tool.
This helps children keep up when their first language isn’t English. You can connect your child with ability-appropriate, supplemental materials on classroom topics, keeping them on track to meet state performance standards while strengthening their reading skills in their native language.
