How are the books levelled?
You’re probably familiar with your kids bringing home little readers from schools which may or may not be labelled with a reading level. In the world of teaching reading there are a number of levelling systems used, the most common being colour levels and number levels.
Lesson Zone Kids eBooks are organised on shelves aligned to both of these levelling systems. Both systems start with very repetitive, supportive, texts using controlled vocabulary and gradual introduction of new words which helps to provide enough supports and challenges for young readers.
Who published the eBooks?
Covering reading levels 1-30+ the collection of over 600 eBooks offers both fiction and non-fiction titles across a broad range of themes. The narrated eBooks have been produced by the renowned educational publisher, Learning Media, and are centered on evidence-based instruction and a commitment to research and effective pedagogy.
