1. How were these books leveled ? They were leveled using Fountas and Pinnell, Matching Books to Readers, p Also, some of our books have already been field tested and leveled by the Reading Recovery Council of North America. 2. Why are there only 30 books in the kit ? The purpose of LIS is to accelerate the children within a 6 week time frame. The teacher should follow the child so as not to hinder the child’s progress. 3.
