The downloadable resources are ideal for use in the literacy program, or during a Science thematic unit about one of the topics in the series. Daily writing is as important as daily reading. By following a reading lesson with a lesson in writing nonfiction, students learn to use the structures modelled in the Go Facts resources in their own writing.
The worksheets provide opportunities for informal assessment throughout the lessons. Teachers can use the Assessment Checklist to record a student’s progress by entering dates and/or comments.
