I love using nonfiction text as often as I can. It’s such a great way to integrate science and social studies into reading, since we all know how difficult it can be to fit everything into our school day.
I created this Nonfiction Fluency Roll & Read packet to add some excitement into their reading fluency practice.
This packet includes 40 science and social studies topics as well as a response sheet for your students to write about what they have learned.
These can be used in whole group, small group, partners, or as individuals. I like to place my students into partnerships, so they can listen to each other read. The students take turns rolling and reading the passage. I usually give them a number of times to roll or a time limit before they stop to write on their response page.

All of the passages in this packet are written at about the same level, but I am currently working on a beginner packet that will be available soon.
I have NO idea how tomorrow is already May 1st! April flew by in the blink of an eye.
I finished up my Nonfiction in May packet yesterday, and am really excited about the topics in this packet.
This May packet includes nonfiction units on Monarch Butterflies, Life Cycles, Insects (general information), Honey Bees, Ants, Ladybugs, and Mother’s Day.
If you aren’t familiar with my monthly nonfiction packets, each topic has an informational sheet as well as comprehension questions, vocabulary words, numerous graphic organizers, and writing opportunities.

We are on Spring Break this week, but if you have school tomorrow, and you need a quick math activity for your students, this is perfect.
Students will spin on the Bunny Spinners to see what numbers they will be using to write their equations. You can differentiate this according to each student’s level. You can have them add two numbers, three numbers, or more. You could have students subtract their numbers, or even multiply.
I have also included two different grouping mats if you would like to have the students demonstrate their equation using jelly beans or seasonal erasers.
This freebie also includes a recording sheet for students to write down their number sentences.

I have finally finished my Nonfiction in April packet, as well.
This packet includes units on Farm Animals (cows, pigs, sheep, & chickens), Plants, Rocks & Minerals (metamorphic, igneous, & sedimentary rocks), and Dinosaurs.
If you have already purchased the entire year bundle, go back and redownload it to get the new update that includes April.
Where in the world did February go? I can’t even believe it’s almost March. My little one is now 3 months old and it has gone by in the blink of an eye.
I was able to finish up my Nonfiction in March packet over the weekend. It includes units on Rainbows, St. Patrick’s Day, Inventors & Inventions (Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, & The Wright Brothers), & Magnets.
As always, these include a reading passage about the topic, comprehension questions, vocabulary words, fact cards, writing organizers, and more.

January has just flown by so far. I’m pretty sure it’s because I’ve been home with the baby, but I also think the warmer than normal January temperatures have made it go by faster than usual as well.

Happy Christmas Break!
I have technically been off for 4 weeks now on maternity leave, but I am still excited for Christmas Break. It’ll be so nice to not have to wake up and get my girls ready for school. Plus…I LOVE Christmas!
I’m ready to celebrate and spend time with my kids.
I know that school is probably the LAST thing on your mind right now, but I did finish my Nonfiction in January packet.
This packet includes nonfiction units on penguins, polar bears, Martin Luther King, Jr. and other Arctic Animals (walruses, seals, beluga whales, arctic foxes, moose, and snowy owls.)
