Leveled Reading is a system that is used to track children’s reading progression and help find books that correspond with that level.
Level O books include multiple, complex characters who develop over time, both descriptive and figurative language, and words with connotative meanings. Level O readers are solving new vocabulary words and can identify organizational structures (compare and contrast, problem and solution) within the text.
