In the books on the Level E shelf, the illustrations are less supportive, the sentences are more complex, and the patterns in the books shift part way through them. Children reading these books need to draw on many sources of information, including the text’s meaning and the syntax. These Level E books contain more literary language and unusual language structures, as well as more dialogue.
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
