At Last–the BRAND NEW Books You Need to Meet California’s Science Content Standards

Can’t Find the Right Curriculum Materials to Match California’s Reading and Science Frameworks?

You’re not alone. Educators across the state have struggled to find matching science content at reading levels appropriate for their students. Fortunately, the search is over.

Focus on California Standards is a series of nonfiction books for grades 3–5 written to meet the specific content standards required by California’s Reading and Science Frameworks. Each book has been carefully written and designed to provide the content and skill support your students need to exceed expectations on the California Standards Test.

Three Different Reading Levels for Differentiated and Value-Added Instruction

Now all of your students can have access to California’s required curriculum. Each Focus on California Standards title has three versions—below level, on level, and above level. Now you can match your students' ability levels to California’s curriculum.

Teach Nonfiction Reading Skills that Match California’s English-language Arts Content Standards, Too!

Focus on California Standards provides practice in important nonfiction reading skills and strategies required by California's ELA content standards. Each title is accompanied by four different activities that teach and apply comprehension and vocabulary skills and strategies. You will cover science and social studies content AND teach nonfiction reading skills at the same time.

Be a Teacher Not a Tester!

Focus on California Standards is not a “test-prep” series. You will not be spending hours “teaching to the test.” However, your students will perform better on the California Standards Test because you will be teaching the science concepts and communication skills found on the test. Not only will your students perform better, they will enjoy learning about the fascinating world around them.
