A set of 3 leveled readers and includes Common Core style questions.
Covers Science Standard:
SC.1.P.13.1 Demonstrate that they way to change the motion of an object is by applying a push or a pull.
TEKS 1.6 Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that force, motion, and energy are related and are a part of everyday life. The student is expected to:
(C) demonstrate and record the ways that objects can move such as in a straight line, zig zag, up and down, back and forth, round and round, and fast and slow.
All of our text is checked with multiple metrics to assure it is at an appropriate complexity for the student. By using multiple metrics, our experienced and knowledge staff are better able to determine an appropriate grade level rating. In most cases (we are still working on updating all text), you will see our text marked as Approaching, On-Grade, or Advanced per a specific grade.
We are also careful to create text with an appropriate length using a well-established norm (Grade Level x 100 + 100/300 words). We do this so our text to be used not just in the science classroom to support content, but also to be used in a reading classroom to support the development of strong readers. All of our text comes with at least 5 ELA-style questions for this purpose.
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.
