I teach 26 dynamic second and third graders in a small, Title I public school in Northern California. My students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and family situations; yet, we come together as a class. My students each have their own learning struggles and strengths; yet, each child's individual needs must be met in our second grade classroom.
Each student learns differently; yet, each child has to master second and third grade Common Core standards.
As their teacher, I must find different ways to help each child meet those standards, in two different grade levels!
Second and third graders love learning about the world around them. New non-fiction books will inspire students to ask, "Why?," as they become more inquisitive readers.
Non-fiction texts will allow students to not only read true stories but will also encourage them to write "expert" books of their own.
Books that encompass all reading levels and a wide range of topics are essential to inspire learning.
National Geographic makes wonderful non-fiction books that have great examples of text features like: table of contents, diagrams, subheadings, glossaries, and more. We need books that show us the different features of book genres.
