Help me give my students a rich and varied classroom library. The books in this project are all Informational Texts. Students must learn the differences between reading fiction as opposed to a non-fiction text.
My students range from 4th to 6th grades in a mixed-age Montessori classroom. We are a public Montessori charter school and my students get to come to this school based on winning a lottery. We have a diverse community of students in which for many English is their second language. I am trying to create a culture of reading in my classroom by boosting the reading library in the classroom. I have collected a list of recommended informational books for the classroom's book club. These books will be read in the classroom for many years to come and help the students to become lifelong readers and learners.
These books will be used in small reading groups or during Distance Learning with explicit guidance about reading non-fiction books.
While reading an informational text, the children have to learn to slow down and make sure that they are understanding the information that is presented to them in the text, charts, and captions that are usually features of an Informational Text.
Students often read informational texts at the same speed as reading a novel. Students will read these books as an at-home reading assignment and follow-up with designing a scientific poster.
