Level K Books

Leveled Reading is a system that is used to track children’s reading progression and help find books that correspond with that level.

Level K books have longer sentences (more than 15 words) as well as longer stretches of print without the support of pictures. Readers are able to use higher level processing connecting multiple episodes to a single plot. They are also able to process dialogue heavy stories.

He has a great idea for the bike part, although high-strung Dolores is upping the ante with her paper-daisy-covered helmets for her and her cat. But the second goal has Andy stumped, until the parade is in motion and his eagle eyes catch the reason why the drum corps has suddenly thrown the marchers out of whack.
