The Common Core State Standards require children to read across multiple texts on the same topic. Magic Tree House Fiction Adventures and their corresponding Non-Fiction Fact Trackers are the ultimate paired texts for grades 1-4 for teachers to use as they guide students to decipher text, compare and contrast, and form opinions.
Common Core State Standards focus on critical thinking and there is a shift toward non-fiction in the classroom. The Magic Tree House Fact Trackers give students in grades 1-4 easy-to-digest information about science and social studies topics, and they include fun facts, photos, illustrations, definitions and more!
