Happy Fall!  Thanks for visiting our blog today!

A constant goal for me is to read more non-fiction books to my students as well as add more non-fiction titles to my classroom library.  Here are some ways I'm working toward this goal.



1.  Read Non-Fiction Picture Books While Students Eat Snack.

I always read a chapter book at snack.  This week I'm reading:


https://www.amazon.com/Elephant-Keeper-Orphaned-Elephants-CitizenKid/dp/1771385618/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1507374331&sr=8-2&keywords=the+elephant+keeper

In this heart-warming story, Aaron walks many miles to his job at a lodge/hotel in Zambia.  One day - upon arrival - he finds a baby elephant thrashing in the pool.  With the help of the gardener and other men, Aaron rescues the elephant who is then taken to an elephant orphanage.  Aaron and Zambezi (the name given to the baby elephant) develop a special bond.  My students are enthralled with this story which gives me encouragement to read more non-fiction at snack time!


2.  Use Bonus Points to Buy Non-fiction at Scholastic


On my two recent book orders, I only ordered non-fiction books for my classroom library:
