Welcome to Wild About Read Alouds!
If you are new to this party, here are the rules: 1) Share your favorite read alouds. I know it's hard to choose one so share as many as you like. 2) Check out other peoples favorite read alouds ( good way to add to your list!) 3) Link back to my party so it's easier to navigate to other posts. Also, feel free to share any products from your store that you have made to go along with your favorite books!
This week I going to feature some great non-fiction texts. I do not have any products made for these particular books but be on the look out in my store for some in the future! You can follow my store at
Okay, here's #1:
|Level 4 (grades 2-4)|
#2 Is a great one! I have the pleasure to say I've seen this author speak at the children's literature festival on a couple of occasions. She is a fascinating lady and a phenomenal artist! Here it is:
|Ghosts of the Whitehouse by Cheryl Harness|
And last but not least on my list for today is :
This is actually an older version of my copy but its made by the same company so I'm sure they are similar. My book has five different categories with 4-7 articles in each. For example, one category is Using the Elements. There are four articles in this category named, Wind Power, The Ways of Water, Passing on the Power, and Harnessing the Sun. The sticker on the cover says ages 8-14 but with guided instruction I think this book could be used all the way down to Kindergarten. You're not going to read the whole article and you may not even read it word for word but you could use this as a tool to teach non-fiction and if they were interested in a topic from the book you could summarize the section using age appropriate vocabulary.
Hope you gained some new reads for your classroom read aloud lists and I can't wait to read yours!
