Studying A-Z books is an exciting and engaging unit! Students become familiar with the elements of this non-fiction text, explore the authors purpose, notice the text and graphic features, identify main ideas and details, and differentiate between fact and opinions. They use the reading strategies of retelling, making connections, questioning, analyzing, and evaluating to better understand the text. With all of this knowledge, students are able to apply what they have learned and write their very own A-Z book. Three great center activities to use wrap up a great unit.
