#SOL15: It’s all about nonfiction!

Inspired by and including ideas from #TCRWP #RUOS chat on August 24, 2015 led by Katie Clements (@clemenkat) about “Tackling Complexity” – grade 5 unit.

“All About Nonfiction”

 

Because you know I’m all about nonfiction

“bout that truth, no fiction

I’m all about nonfiction

‘Bout that livin’ in the world

I’m all about nonfiction

‘Bout that learnin’, no fantasy

I’m all about nonfiction . . .

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I like the real stuff

Not that made up stuff, that fantasy and sci fi,

‘Cause I like living in the real world, today’s world,

With learning in each day.

I see art, pictures, and videos showin’ pieces of real life

We choose it because it’s so real, we move in closer and closer for every detail

If you got a passion, name it and just let it rip

‘Cause learnin’ is more fun when you get to choose your own path to sail.

Because you know I’m all about nonfiction

“Bout that truth, no fiction

I’m all about nonfiction

‘Bout that livin’ in the world

I’m all about nonfiction

‘Bout that learnin’, no fantasy

I’m all about nonfiction . . .

Because you know I’m all about nonfiction

‘Bout that truth, no fiction

I’m all about nonfiction

It’s all about your world

I’m all about nonfiction

‘Bout your life – no kidding

I’m all about nonfiction!*

*Adapted from lyrics by Meghan Trainor “All About That Bass”

  1. So fun! I can just see this with books and kids dancing.
    Love this line: “‘Cause learnin’ is more fun when you get to choose your own path to sail.”

    1. It would be fun to have the kids revise and then choose books to use – just to see their own decisions!

      Love that you picked one of the lines where I actually worked on the rhyme!

      HAVE a great Tuesday, Julieanne!

    1. THANKS! Such fun thinking that kept me from the real work . . . 🙂

  2. Love this post. How great it would be to have students do something similar about their passion.

    1. So true. We could practice/share writing for some “school” ones like reading workshop or writing workshop and then turn them loose! FUN!
