These Level H books contain more complex literary language, more complex vocabulary, and often more technical vocabulary, especially in informational books. Picture support is minimal and requires readers to make clear mental images and connections to their own experiences in life or in other books. These Level H books have less repetition of episodes, requiring the student to keep the events of the story in order and relate the events to each other to get the big idea of the story.
The books in this library shelf are also included in the complete Grade 1 Classroom Library. For complete details about the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Classroom Libraries please visit CalkinsLibraries.com.
