Let’s Look in a Book

By: Nell K. Duke


Presentation Objectives

  • Learn the importance of using nonfiction text in Pre-K classrooms.

  • Learn how to select appropriate nonfiction material.


Importance of Nonfiction Texts in Pre-K

  • Children need real life information.

  • Children are naturally curious and love learning new things.

  • Children gain background knowledge about a variety of topics.

  • Children learn new vocabulary.


“The reason that certain text types (like nonfiction) and features of texts (visuals) tend to engage boys has much less to do with the text itself, and much more to do with the connection these features encourage readers to make to the world.” (Wilhelm 2002, p16)

“Adult behaviors that support children’s learning during story interactions are to clarify information, demonstrate, to develop story structure, to draw attention to illustrations, to extend student responses, to extend vocabulary, inform, meta-narrate the text and/or pictures, praise, to point out text features, and scaffold strategies of a reader.”
