Lexile Measures for Cobblestone & Cricket Titles

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:

  1. An overall measure for the full issue
  2. The Lexile measures of individual articles and stories in the issue
  3. The alignment of each article to the new reading goals of the Common Core State Standards by grade level
  4. The word count for every article and the magazine in total
