fiction or non-fiction.  Remember, fiction is an entertaining, make-believe story that is not real; non-fiction is true information that gives you facts to explain something. Listen  and decide if what you hear is fiction or non-fiction. Click on the blue word if what you hear is fiction. Click on the green word if what you hear is non-fiction. 

 

blue spotted cow


Sarah Jane is my cow.  Last week she told me a story about how she got her blue spots. She said when she was little, all she would eat was blueberries.  Blueberries for breakfast, blueberries for lunch, and blueberries for dinner. One day, she woke up and she had blue spots!

Cats make great pets and are easy to take care of.  Cats need to be fed several times a day and eat either dry or canned cat food.  Cats keep themselves clean by washing themselves with their tongues. Cats like to play with small balls, pieces of yarn and special cat toys that you can buy.

kids getting off school bus


Many kids ride the bus to school so it is important to know how to be safe on a bus.  The most important way to be safe while riding on a bus is to always sit down in your seat. If you are standing up and the bus stops quickly, you could fall and get hurt.  Another way to be safe when riding the bus is to always listen to your bus driver.  He or she will tell you when it is safe to cross the street.

box of crayons


Last night, I heard my Red crayon tell my Blue crayon that he didn't want to be his friend anymore.  The other crayons started to cry when they heard this!  I took my Blue crayon out of the box and asked him why he didn't want to be Red's friend.  He told me that Red pushed him into the back row and he didn't like it.  I asked Red to apologize; he did, the two were friends again and the other crayons stopped crying.
