This item is a set of leveled readers that covers the first grade content about the Sun, it's benefits and harmful effects. A great reader with lots of text support from beautiful pictures. The set comes complete with Common Core style questions making it a perfect integration piece.
SC.1.E.5.4 Identify the beneficial and harmful properties of the Sun.
TEKS 1.1 Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student conducts classroom and outdoor investigations following home and school safety procedures and uses environmentally appropriate and responsible practices. The student is expected to:
(A) identify, discuss, and demonstrate safe and healthy practices as outlined in Texas Education agency-approved safety standards during classroom and outdoor investigations, including wearing safety goggles or chemical splash goggles, as appropriate, washing hands, and using materials appropriately.
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:
(A) identify and discuss how different forms of energy such as light, thermal, and sound are important to everyday life.
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.
