Encouraging students to read nonfiction text during independent reading time can be a challenge. Many students dive into a chapter book, but aren't sure how to choose from your nonfiction library choices. With nonfiction READO, students are given choices, but also some direction on which types of books to choose from.
Categories were determined by suggestions from the CCSS and the NGSS webpages, in the 3rd-5th grade reading band. Also, these books may be readily available in the classroom or school library.
