Nonfiction and Fiction Book Hunt

Fiction VS. Nonfiction texts

Time for nonfiction! I’m loving it! The kiddos are, too. Today, we focused on simply distinguishing between fiction and nonfiction text. I used my fiction vs. nonfiction activity from my Nonfiction Comprehension set. I pre-made this anchor chart, gave directions, and the kiddos got to work on their nonfiction and fiction book hunt.

My Students on Nonfiction and Fiction Book Hunt

I laid out my books and let my kiddos go searching! They had to find one nonfiction book and write the title on the pink Post-it note. Then, they had to find one fictional story and write it on the green Post-it note. When they were done, they stuck them up to the fiction and nonfiction anchor chart.

Nonfiction comprehension

They got a pink post-it for nonfiction and a green post-it for fiction.

Then, as a class, we checked over the titles to make sure everyone’s sounded correct.

Then, we did a mini lesson on text features and worked through a cut and paste together.
These activities are both in my nonfiction unit! This was a big step for them, so we did a lot of guided practice together. We used one book under the document camera for a sample.
