The goal is for students to master a level, and then move on to the next. Each level has a collection of activities to help students build skills on that reading level. Before using an activity in centers, I like to introduce it as a group game in our minilesson. This helps kids understand what is expected of them for each center.
You can mix levels in the classroom to differentiate activities for each level of reader. Students who progress through the levels faster than the others can work on the higher level centers.
Letters can be a cumulative practice of all the letters you have covered in class so far, or they can be a mix of all the letters. I recommend using only the letters you have covered in class so far.
The Beginning Basics level is designed to correspond with a guided reading level AA.
