Nonfiction is so interesting!
When reading nonfiction children are also learning new vocabulary and building their knowledge of the world. Both of these things will support their learning in school as they get older.
Well, what types of nonfiction should we encourage students to read? There are books written about every topic kids could imagine: sports - players and how to improve your game, crafts, cooking, insects and animals, trains, planes, and automobiles, famous and interesting people, and more. Children could read about plants and gardens and plan what they might help you plant when Spring does arrive. They could also read about places to travel in Wisconsin and help plan a summer vacation, or read about places far away to marvel at how different they are from home.
Whatever topic they choose nonfiction reading is a great way to leave the monotony of Winter behind and develop their curiosity at the same time.
