After I collect all of the student responses for the chart, I engage students in a read aloud of Weather Words and What they Mean by Gail Gibbons.
Before I read the text, I talk to students for a minute about why we use nonfiction text. I explain by saying, 'When we want to learn more about something that we are interested in, or something that we do not know very much about, we can read nonfiction books. They teach us facts about things in real life.'
In kindergarten, we reference fiction and nonfiction a lot and what the differences are in each. Science time is a great opportunity to reinforce these ideas and make connections to how scientist use nonfiction text.
As we read through the text, I stop and ask questions.
What examples of weather did you learn about in this book?
What else did you learn?

I chose this book because it is simple but to the point for kindergarten students. It lays it out nicely for them to understand. One of my favorite authors for science texts for children is Gail Gibbons. Her books have great visuals with a lot of vocabulary!
