Independent Readers -Help needed!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently working in a Primary School overseas as a Literacy Co-ordinator and am in the process of re-banding all of our Independent reading books according to the national book banding system. We have a range of reading schemes from ORT to PM to Rigby Star and I'm confused as to where to start. Staff want to know approximate reading ages for each book band colour, but I keep finding contrasting things on the internet.

    Also PM book band colours differ slightly from ORT and I'm not sure how to re-band these to fit in with the national book banding system. I could be over-complicating things, but with nobody here to turn to for advice I'm stuck!
    Does anybody have a correlation chart they've used? Or can anyone share anything at all that will help me please?
