A challenge that could work well with Passport Nonfiction would be the Non-Fiction Picture Challenge. This could be a great challenge for students, teachers, librarians or classes together. Simply pick a goal for the number of nonfiction picture books you would like to read and start. You might want your challenge books to match the current themes on the Passport Nonfiction calendar. If you have a blog and want to join this challenge, please visit Kid Lit Frenzy’s challenge <a href=”http://www.kidlitfrenzy.com/2011/12/reading-challenge-for-2012-non-fiction.html” title=”Non-fiction Picture Book Challenge” target=”_blank”>post</a>. The Non-fiction Picture Book Challenge is being run by Kid Lit Frenzy and the Nonfiction Detectives.
In a classroom or library have students keep track of the non-fiction picture books they’ve read. Students could post slips with the titles they read. A poster with tally marks could be created toward the class goal. Covers of the books they’ve read could be posted on a website as a slideshow or be used on a digital photo frame. Create a class notebook with reviews and notes for other students to explore.
Create a display of nonfiction picture books to catch your students’ interest. Let them see what is available and invite them to explore!
Please let Passport Nonfiction know about any displays you create so they can be highlighted here.
