    • Diving into Nonfiction!
    • How to choose…
      • Based on reading ability as well as background knowledge
    • Five Finger Rule
      • Have your child read the first page with a decent amount of text.
      • Put up a finger for each unknown or hard word.
      • 0-1 fingers = too easy
      • 2-3 fingers = just right
      • 4-5 fingers = too hard
    • Notice the text features
      • Table of contents
      • Headings
      • Captions
      • Glossary
      • Charts
    • Ask questions
      • Before, during, and after reading
      • I wonder…
      • Students may find answers to the questions as they continue reading.
    • Take notes
      • Notes are not complete sentences
      • They are in students’ own words
      • They contain only the important or interesting points
      • Use them to retell
    • Reread
      • Pause to think…don’t rush
      • Good readers reread when they don’t understand
    • Choose another book
      • Reading more than one book on a topic increases nonfiction reading skills.
