No matter what curriculum or standards your district uses, we can all agree that it's very important for students to be able to read and comprehend nonfiction texts. My "Fact Tracker Notebook" will help engage your students as they read about Dog Heroes.

A popular book series at my school is the Magic Tree House series. I read "Pirates Past Noon" with my students and they loved it. I wanted to supplement it with a nonfiction text. I began doing some research and found the Magic Tree House nonfiction companion texts. Then I started thinking of a way to make nonfiction more engaging. That's when I created the "Fact Tracker Notebook." Students will read the nonfiction text. As they read, they will be like Jack (the character from the MTH series) and take notes. They will put it into a "notebook" that will be full of facts and illustrations.

This product is made to use with the book, "Magic Tree House Fact Tracker #24: Dog Heroes: A Nonfiction Companion to Magic Tree House #46: Dogs in the Dead of Night" by Will and Mary Pope Osborne. You can view the book: here
This notebook is designed to be printed on construction paper or cardstock. Students can hole punch it and attach the pages together with book rings or a ribbon for a great keepsake.

You will print full sheets for students to write on. When finished, students will cut apart the pages to create a fact tracker notebook. I have included a page for 5 facts and a page for illustrations for each chapter in the book.

This product is also great for differentiation! You can omit some of the required facts if students struggle, or you can add on if students want to do more. Students get to choose their own facts, so that makes it a personal product they will be proud of.

I also included a rubric for this product so that you can assess student work without having to write anything on their notebooks.

This is a great project for students to do after the read the Magic Tree House fiction book or if they read the nonfiction companion alone.

This product includes:
- a "how to" guide to using the notebook
- examples of completed student book pages
- a facts page and illustrations pages for each of the 7 chapters
- a rubric for grading
