Non-Fiction Know-It-Alls

It's been several months since my last blog post. 
But, no excuses! Just happy to share again...

We just started really getting into non-fiction in my class. Although my students have been exposed to non-fiction texts all year, I am now on a mission to make them "Non-Fiction Know-It-Alls"! My district will be adopting the Common Core standards next year. However, I'm trying to get a jump start with the new standards. I am working on different ways to expose my kiddos to non-fiction texts. We have started with Scholastic News. I have been using the following two printables to help them summarize and understand non-fiction texts.

This week we will really get into the different non-fiction text features. I plan to use the following note sheets to have them take notes and record examples

This last printable is based on the 4th grade common core standards for reading informative texts. My students are truly going to be non-fiction know-it-alls and common core ready!
