Doc and Ali have created this "textbook" to align perfectly to Florida's NGSSS standards. Every section comes with reading comprehension questions.
Book is flexible enough to use as a projected Read Along or independent practice later on in the year.
Written specifically for Florida NGSSS standards. Each reading comes complete with 5 reading comprehension questions. Would be a wonderful compliment to an integrated ELA-Science classroom. All sections are carefully crafted for readability using multiple metrics so they are at an appropriate level to promote the skill of reading.
133 pages divided into 14 discrete units.

Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers. All have been (most still are) traditional classroom teachers with an average of 20 years of experience. We started our work because of a local need, but quickly realized the need for high quality, inexpensive resources was great. In response, we continue to produce science readers with multiple reading levels (compatible with CCSS text-complexity requirements), lesson plans, and even assessments to make the lives of teachers easier and more productive.
