    :) I'm trying to encourage my school to use the book band system to ensure the children read a wide range of books before moving on to the next level. However, we use the Dandelion Readers Launchers books, and I'm sure sure where and how they fit into the book banding.
    Is there anyone who has a book band list that includes the Dandelion reading scheme? It would be very much appreciated.:rolleyes:

    Units 1-6 are roughly pink
    Units 7-10 red
    Units 11-20 yellow
    Level 1 yellow
    Level 2 blue
    Level 3 blue
    Level 4 blue
    Split vowels blue

    book banding criteria is based on Reading Recovery /mixed methods so don't match well with phonic progression so any banding can only be a rough idea
