Nonfiction and Research

Since the passages on the ISTEP test are mostly nonfiction, I think it's important to add some of those passages here. These are definitely more difficult to read and understand, but I think it'll be good preparation for my students. I tried to find a variety of stories that I hope appeal to them. It will be helpful if you read and discuss the information with your child.
