Common Core Nonfiction Reading

My students need good quality, nonfiction texts that are easily accessible in our classroom and resources that help them understand nonfiction.

My Students

My 3rd grade students are a diverse and unique group of learners. I strive to reach all of my readers but I don't always have the resources to meet the needs of each individual student.

As 3rd graders, my students are striving to gain skills and knowledge that will support them as they move through their educational career.

We are learning to read challenging informational texts and research with a variety of resources. Reading and understanding nonfiction books are crucial for future academic success. With these materials, my students will be able to strengthen and build a solid foundation for comprehending nonfiction texts.

My Project

The multi-leveled nonfiction set will be used during guided reading so that students at varying levels can learn strategies for understanding nonfiction. The comprehension cards will give the students a chance to independently use their knowledge and learned strategies to understand nonfiction text. In addition, the books will be placed in the classroom library available for the students to put in their books bins and read during independent reading time. This will give the students an opportunity to read a nonfiction text about a topic they are interested in and want to learn more about. With the materials from this project, I know my students will become confident and excited nonfiction readers!

I am requesting a variety of nonfiction books and resources to help students understand the texts.

With access to diverse and challenging informational texts, my students will have more opportunities to become fluent readers of nonfiction, which will support their learning in all subject areas, help them become better writers, and provide opportunities to analyze difficult texts. These skills are essential in supporting the 21st century learner, and will help them become college and career ready.
