Nursery Rhymes and Non-Fiction: Getting Students to Think, Talk, and Write About Reading is a unit designed for kindergarten and first grade students The activities are designed to get students thinking about reading. They form opinions, evaluate information and justify answers. They get students talking as they share their ideas with one another. They get them writing by requiring written response to the texts. They lay the foundation for learning to code text while reading. The lessons and activities are designed to align with the CCSS. Each nursery rhyme comes with a lesson plan, a color and B&W text sheet which contains the rhyme and a short non-fiction text, a response sheet and an optional follow-up activity.
