More About This Resource

Teach your students fiction vs nonfiction using this Comparing Fiction and Non-Fiction Resource! This resource includes fiction and nonfiction teaching posters and whole group sorting activities you can use to build an anchor chart that students can refer to as they learn the differences between fiction and nonfiction. You’ll also get a variety of fiction vs. non-fiction student printables that can be used in literacy centers, for homework, or as an assessment.

After you build a fiction vs. non-fiction anchor chart with your students, use the NO PREP student printables to give them extra practice. The resource includes a fiction vs. non-fiction Venn diagram printable and a t-chart printable for sorting the features of each genre. You will also get a reading response printable where students identify if a text is fiction or non-fiction and explain in writing how they know. With so many options, this resource makes it easy to differentiate to meet the needs of your individual students.

While this resource is designed for kindergarten, first or second grade, it can serve as a great review activity for third, fourth or fifth-grade students!
