Sorry for being a day late, but it's well worth the wait.  I am excited to share with you two professional resources that I am currently loving.

Kylene Beers and Robert Probst are at it again with this awesome professional resource for teaching nonfiction reading strategies.  Lovers of Notice and Note will quickly enjoy the signposts and strategies given to help support students through nonfiction text.  I remember reading Notice and Note and thinking how awesome a nonfiction component would be....well my wishes have been granted.  It is hot off the press and chock full of anchor charts and mentor text to get your students thinking and learning.

Another book I am obsessed about is Ralph Fletcher's new book Making Nonfiction from Scratch.  This is a great resource and....it's printed in COLOR!!!  Ralph really breaks it down and gives fantastic ideas and mentor samples to help young writers write nonfiction.  Ralph is always a go to for me and you will not be disappointed with this one.

So there it is, what I am currently reading.  Professionally, I am reading a lot about nonfiction because it is so prevalent with the core.  However, I am finding so much value in getting kids to understand and be able to write nonfiction.
