The Magic Tree House books are wonderful a resource to help students read non-fiction texts and learn about non-fiction text features. The ABC Journaling Notebooks are a great way to learn about the important role of our rain forests.
We purchase 15 copies of the fact trackers and students share in partners.
This is also a great activity for an Independent Project or a Literacy Center needing one book for the classroom.
We purchase one copy of the fiction book Afternoon on the Amazon to use as a read aloud during the unit. Students have success with listening comprehension because the author pairs the two books connecting facts and ideas. This book can be purchased or checked out from the library.
