Our Necessary Moon Leveled Reader for MS (On grade & Approaching)

(0)
Description: Reader describes how the Moon may have formed, and how its presence influenced and continues to influence life on Earth. Use in either the ELA or science classroom. Package include two readers, one on-grade for middle school science and one for the approaching level student. Readers comes complete with 5 ELA-style questions. Readability: 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. Supports standards: Science: Florida NGSSS SC.8.E.5.9 Explain the impact of objects in space on each other including: the Sun on the Earth including seasons and gravitational attraction the Moon on the Earth, including phases, tides, and eclipses, and the relative position of each body. TEKS 8 (Summary Statement): The student knows the effects resulting from cyclical movements of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. TEKS 8.7©: relate the positions of the Moon and Sun to their effect on ocean tides. ELA: ELA TEKS: 8.10©: make subtle inferences and draw complex conclusions about the ideas in text and their organizational patterns 2019 ELA TEKS: 8.5(F): make inferences and use evidence to support understanding; About us: Candlelight Science is a group of educator/writers.
