LION big3

LION/LEON
The Learning Inventory of Need (LION) in English and Spanish (LEON), is a comprehensive, adaptive reading assessment for students grades KG – 12 (KG – 6 for Spanish).  Student results include an independent and instructional reading level for fiction and nonfiction, as well as foundational focus skills to assist teachers in remediation, enrichment, and guided reading lessons.  The complete suite of results provides teacher lesson plans, small group activities, student-based online games, and leveled running records for one-on-one sessions.  A complete and comprehensive literacy RTI/MTSS tool.

Bridging Readers

Leveled Books

Bridging Readers (LION Literacy Levels 300, 350): Readers at this level are able to read most words automatically, only stopping to sound out unknown words with tricky patterns (for example, "beautiful" or "knock"). These students read with expression, use punctuation properly, and are able to correct themselves. Bridging readers can read for extended periods of time (at least 20 minutes), comprehend passages with more complex ideas in a variety of genres, and answer "why" questions about the text.
