Unlike the customary age-based levels in traditional education, Orsch skill levels are not tied to age or grade-based levels. Please click on our description of each skill level to determine the best fit. Keep in mind that it is common for kids to fall into more than one skill level based on the subject and/or theme. Sometimes you’re a Mid Kid writer and an Excel sciencer 😊. It is also fun to allow kids to choose an easier or challenging level based on their appetite for the activities or subject matter. Giving students the freedom to choose their own levels is the best method 😊.
