Reading Fall


I am so excited to begin our nonfiction reading unit. By learning to how to use information presented in various types of nonfiction material, students will prepare to use the multitude of expository texts that readers of all ages encounter daily, including newspapers, brochures, magazines, instruction manuals, recipes, and maps. Students will learn the tools of reading nonfiction, and use think-aloud strategies to prepare to read the selection.
