Help your child get started reading nonfiction with this quick worksheet that introduces first graders and second graders to reading that goes beyond fairytales. Kids can read a list of different genres of writing, like poetry, plays, and textbooks, as they begin to differentiate between fiction vs. nonfiction. Next, they're asked to brainstorm a few more examples to add to the list. Finally, they will practice reading fiction and nonfiction excerpts to see if they can determine which one is which.
