Savvas Science Leveled Readers Program for Grades 1-6

Different strategies. Access for all. Improved AYP.

The Scott Foresman Leveled Reader Enhancement Package makes sure that every minute you spend teaching Science is a minute spent teaching Reading. We’ve pulled together a selection of Reading Leveled Readers, and Science Leveled Readers by topic to ensure that your classroom is constantly reinforcing core reading skills and strategies across discipline.

Language is central to learning. When it comes to understanding science content, we know that every student's needs are different. Savvas is committed to providing access to all students at every stage in their learning development. This is why we have integrated differentiated English Language Learning tools and strategies throughout all of our technology products. With Savvas Leveled Readers, you can improve AYP by specifically targeting the grades that most need improvement in your school or district. Give your borderline students a chance to overcome gaps through a leveled reading approach-while improving AYP in your school or district.
