Abstract: abstract:The purpose of this study is to investigate how the instructor can choose suitable English reading material for Grade 1 senior high school students. In this study, Fry’s oral reading test (1997) is introduced as a tool to evaluate students’ reading abilities so proper reading materials can be used. Fry’s oral reading test is originally designed to estimate native English speakers’ reading abilities. To effectively identify EFL students’ English reading abilities, the researcher added another direction for administering the oral reading test. By considering the results of Fry’s test, the researcher received a general understanding of the 80 participants’ reading proficiency levels and determined Level 2 was the starting point for this group. Then the participants started their reading with Level Two readers. The 80 participants completed three post-reading questionnaires after they read three selected graded readers. The results of the questionnaires show that the material at Level 2 is a suitable starting point for this group of students to do English extensive reading. Most of the students in this study felt comfortable to read the selected material and can read it without the teacher’s assistance. The results also show that the selected reading material which is well within the students’ reading comprehension level may keep their motivation to read English text and even read higher levels of English text. As well, the researcher finds that Fry’s oral reading tool is easy and convenient to administer and useful to determine the students’ reading proficiency level
