This month, we added to our growing collection of picture book guides. 50 new guides were added to StarrMatica this month for free online non-fiction texts. With the Common Core’s heavy focus on non-fiction, these guides provide treasure trove of resources to increase your students’ experience and confidence with non-fiction texts.
If you aren’t familiar, picture book guides help you to easily use our picture book resources by providing a ready to-go lesson plan developed by a fellow teacher. Content guides for picture books include digital connections, launching activities, example questions, enrichment ideas, answer keys, and standards correlations. You can check out one of our new non-fiction guides here: The First Airplane
All guides are included for free in StarrMatica’s Classroom Management system, or can be purchased individually by non-members in Emily Starr’s Teachers Pay Teachers store. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Emily-Starr
