Children are curious about the world! Whether it is about bugs, animals, robots, skyscrapers or dogs, they love to ask questions, explore and learn.
Having access to high interest nonfiction books will increase their curiosity, strengthen their nonfiction reading skills and help them become critical readers.
My hope is for my fifth-grade students to fall in love with nonfiction reading! This year I will be teaching reading workshop to two fifth grade classes in Brooklyn, NY and these students need a nonfiction library to help become critical readers of nonfiction. They love to read and each day they will spend at least 45 minutes reading, thinking and talking about their books. Having rich, interesting, well written nonfiction books will help them become lifelong readers and critical thinkers!
Kids are naturally curious about the world around them. They look to ask and answer questions, research and explore. Nonfiction books are extremely important to a classroom library. Having access to rich, interesting, complex nonfiction books will help students become critical and thoughtful nonfiction readers.
With these nonfiction books the students in my classroom will become enthusiastic and reflective readers.
These books will help students explore their passions and interests while also working on interpretive and analytical reading skills. With these books I will be able to begin to build a library that is based on high interest nonfiction topics.
