If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should hurry to the library and pick up a nonfiction text!
Students all around SIS are immersing themselves in the wonderful world of nonfiction. In fourth grade, students have been writing their own nonfiction texts, ranging from newspaper stories to family recipes. They have shared their knowledge with their peers and in turn, have learned how this genre has helped shaped the world we live in.
When we read non-fiction texts we truly open ourselves up to the world of learning. A teacher can learn how a doctor performs open-heart surgery. A student can learn how to create robots out of soda cans, and a principal can learn how a rugby ball is designed and made.
“Wow! Can you believe this?” “Did you know that…” and “I never knew that…” are common phrases being heard during Reader’s Workshops at Parkside. Students are simply amazed at all the information they can learn from picking up just one nonfiction text.
Take some time this week to explore this opportunity to increase your knowledge base. Students in 4C highly recommend the following nonfiction texts for your reading enjoyment:
*See How It’s Made by DK Publishing
*Look What Came From China by Miles Harvey
*Guts: Our Digestive System by Seymour Simon
*Worst Case Scenario, Junior Edition by David Bor genicht
Have fun learning more about our fantastic world!
