Thank you for your interest in The Little Explorers Non-Fiction series!
Teaching students to read and comprehend non-fiction texts is no easy feat. While many students love the kinds of topics covered in non-fiction texts, they often find these types of books inaccessible to them.
This bundle is a compilation of all of the September units that were designed to give young students a strong foundation and exposure to non-fiction texts and topics. While these units are recommended for September, they can be used in any month you choose.
This BUNDLE is part of a series that is available in a yearlong bundle! Save BIG by purchasing the yearlong bundle.Little Explorers Non-Fiction Yearlong Bundle
