Fabulous facts You may have noticed that your first grader isn’t reading only fictional stories this year. Under the Common Core Standards, greater emphasis is being placed on reading nonfiction, even in the earliest grades. By the end of first grade, your child should understand the difference between fiction and nonfiction books and be spending about equal time reading each. If you think nonfiction has to be dry or dull, think again. Whether your child loves trains, animals, heroic historical figures, medieval knights, or rocks, the library is full of nonfiction books on topics they’ll be excited about.
