We're Wild About Reading Non-Fiction!

My students need a variety of nonfiction materials (such as Creepy Beetles Take Home Pack, All Kinds of Animals Vocabulary Readers, and more) to inspire a love for reading while building skills and encouraging critical thinking!

My Students

Can you imagine how exciting to read about creepy crawlies, diving dolphins, or visiting an active volcano and feeling like you are there? Amazing photos and fascinating facts can keep my students "wildly" engaged!

I teach at a kindergarten through fifth grade building with approximately 500 students.

I have 24 second graders who are "Wild About Learning", my classroom theme. I have a wide variety of learners in my classroom; from high risk to high ability and everything in-between.

My Project

My students will be able to use all the nonfiction materials both in-school reading and at-home activities from small group to independent explorations! "All Kinds of Animal Vocabulary Readers" will boost vocabulary skills while teaching the wonders of the animal kingdom! Both "Investigate Science! Activity Readers" and "Eyewitness Nonfiction Readers" engage students in essential science concepts using real-life situations, stunning photos, and fascinating facts! "The Creepy Beetles Take Home Pack" is a great way to encourage at-home reading with irresistible books and hands-on activities for parents and students to share! Think of the comprehension possibilities!

When students find any reading materials that keep them engaged and excited about reading, we all win... teachers and students!

Nonfiction science readers can be such an amazing resource in the classroom and can be used during daily literacy stations, as well as during any small group, paired or independent reading time! What a BONUS for a teacher!! Nonfiction readers are even more exciting than fiction and inspire students to read a book from cover to cover!!!
