Morning Work Ideas using Weird but True Facts

I fell in love with the facts from National Geographic Kids magazine. I have all 4 Weird but True Facts.  The students love reading the fun facts.  They work great for showing kids  Author's Purpose to Inform.  The Weird but true app is FREE for a limited time for all those of you who have ipads in your classroom. Of course I have the app too and it is great for READ to SELF in Daily 5 time.  Boys just love these true facts.  We display a fact a day and fill out a sheet for morning work to review some reading, math, and grammar skills.  You can get these morning work sheets free at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

  1. What a good idea! I love weird facts myself :).


  2. This looks very interesting. Could you explain a little more how you use it? I don't understand the number, number word, number sentence, as well as what to do in other parts as well. I think my kids would enjoy this, I just can't seem to understand it all. Thanks!

  3. I would love a little more information as well. I think my kids would love this, but I don't understand what does in each box. Also, is one sheet for the entire week? Do you choose facts that have a common theme over the week? Thanks!
