Non-fiction Reading

This quarter I am trying to focus on getting my students to read more non-fiction books and texts. Something that has really helped is gathering a collection of children's magazines (sports, science, nature, etc.). I have these available to students during Read to Self time. I know they are enjoying themelves flipping through the magazines, but I felt that I needed evidence that they were not merely flipping through pages. I made the executive decision that I would focus our reading literacy station on non-fiction reading. I generated a worksheet that students will use to respond to two articles of their choice from the magazine they're reading. I kept it pretty basic. I am making this sheet available through my TpT store. If you want to check it out just click on the picture, and it should link you straight to the product page. I will keep you posted on how this goes. Later y'all.
