Cool Non-Fiction Find!!

I *LOVE* teaching non-fiction during this time of year. 
It is absolutely thrilling to watch 5 and 6 year old children research, collect and share facts, use NF text features like bold print and captions, and more!

Click {HERE} to check out a previous post I wrote about how I teach non-fiction. 

{Here are other non-fiction posts I have shared} 

I just found another AWESOME non-fiction resource that I wanted to share...


They are all incredibly engaging - 
gorgeous photographs
interesting facts
each page can be read by the students - or read to them!

I can't wait to share these with my kindergarten friends!

Follow my non-fiction board to see what other resources inspire my kinders!

Live Bald Eagle Cam

We are busy working on our Non-Fiction unit in Reader's and Writer's Workshop. 

The students have been doing an awesome job gathering information, finding and practicing using non-fiction text features, and sharing interesting facts, finds, and resources with their friends.

We've loved observing this eagle. 
Kindergarten friends...
there may be another egg! :)
