Learning About the World: Reading Nonfiction
Wild Kratts: A Great Resource for Nonfiction Fluency
In Bend II and Bend III of Learning About the World: Reading Nonfiction you'll help your students make their voices reflect more meaning and provide emphasis to help convey what a word, phrase, or whole section means (p.

Coach students to use their voices to "punch out" (add emphasis) important words.
