Placement for Level 1
Please note that the Level numbers on our books dont refer to grade levels. Our lessons are mastery-based, not grade-level-based. This means that students are placed where they are at ability-wise, not according to age or grade level. So just because the books say Level 1 doesnt meant that it is appropriate for all first graders. Some kids may begin the program in kindergarten, while others may begin at an older age.
