Finding nonfiction texts at an appropriate level for kindergarten guided reading groups is a difficult (and often expensive!!) task. With the increased expectation of kindergarteners reading nonfiction texts based on the Common Core Standards, it is crucial that teachers have access to leveled nonfiction books that their students can read (and want to read!!) With that thought in mind, I have created this book (and will be creating many more!!)
This book is written at an approximate level C. Many sight words are used to support early readers as they begin to read nonfiction text.The complete text of the book is included below, so you can see if it will meet the needs of your students.
