Level Storm goes beyond traditional literature. It introduces students to nonfiction, poetry, humor, and more, all through selections from the Rainy Day Reader. Experience a diverse range of writings from both renowned and less-known authors, all curated from open source historical records. From short stories, poetry, and plays to inspiring speeches, this edition promises a holistic literary exploration.
The workbook emphasizes core literary concepts, composition, critical thinking, and in-depth grammar review. Familiar to those who’ve used Elementary Lightning Lit Levels, the format of this edition remains consistent. Intended for grades 6-8, Level Storm is the 7th in the series.
