Common Core dictates that we add more nonfiction to the curriculum. Here is a nonfiction "book" on blue birds. This book makes the distinction between bluebirds and blue birds, exploring the many blue colored birds in the world. I use M-Th. Monday, we do a picture walk and I read the book to the students. Tuesday, we do echo reading. Wednesday, we read together. Thursday, the students take turns reading. Excellent for science content as well.
