Informational text is an important part of our new common core content. We have done a lot of reading, comparing and enjoying nonfiction books so far this year. We are going to continue with some great books: National Geographic for Kids. These are a great level for them to understand the vocabulary, use pictures to help them define new information and are a level in which some kids can read them! I just ordered some from Scholastic with my points (thank you) and I'm excited to share them! An important part of reading and learning from informational text, is asking questions and learning how to find the answers from the text. We will do this by looking at the table of contents, glossary and other nonfiction features as well as inferring meaning from the text.
If you are looking for good nonfiction books, these are great! Or the "little kids" and "kids" magazine subscription are great too! I highly suggest these books! I love them! There are tons for a good price on the Scholastic book order site!
