PM Levelled Texts

The

PM Levelled Texts

are a set of 125 books

for levels 1–25, with five books per level. The

texts feature genuine Middle-Eastern settings,

providing authentic reading resources which

allow children to relate the concepts and the

situations to their own experiences.

Levels 1 and 2 texts focus on two or more

high-frequency words with a high repetition

rate allowing students to read them with

fluency. From levels 3 to 5, new high-frequency

words are introduced gradually and reinforced

throughout books at the same and succeeding

levels, while sentence construction is kept

short and simple.

Texts from levels 6–10 continue to increase

the number of sight words known to students.

Sentence construction becomes gradually

more complex and a more diverse range of

language features is included.

In levels 11–25, familiar characters reappear in

the fiction texts, while students are gradually

introduced to environments and concepts

beyond their immediate experience. More

specific vocabulary, challenging sentence

structures and new text types continue to

develop the students’ language skills.

a gradual learning gradient

• deliberate close match of text with illustrations and

photographs to help students interpret and derive
