Is It Fiction or Non-Fiction? FREEBIE

I hope everyone had an amazing Fourth of July weekend! I know I did!!  Now it's back to the grind!  I wanted to post a FREEBIE to go after Fourth of July, thought it would be appropriate!  This one features students sorting whether titles are fiction or non-fiction.  Even some of my 6th graders sometimes struggle with the meanings of fiction and non-fiction, they always mix them up!  This is a great center activity to reinforce those skills.

These are some book titles that students will sort into
fiction and non-fiction categories.
These are the sorting mats that students use to sort the book titles.
It helps them organize their answers before recording them on their
response page.

I love having students complete hands on center activities because it keeps them engaged while I work with a reading group.  Another great idea is to have students check each other's work.  I know my students really enjoy this task because it gives them the opportunity to be the teacher.
