Cobblestone & Cricket magazines are now being evaluated for readability with the Lexile Framework for Reading. Lexile measures help determine a text’s difficulty, and teachers can suggest texts that meet or challenge a student’s reading ability.
The Cobblestone & Cricket Lexile Measures Charts provide four useful sets of data:
- An overall measure for the full issue
- The Lexile measures of individual articles and stories in the issue
- The alignment of each article to the new reading goals of the Common Core State Standards by grade level
- The word count for every article and the magazine in total
