Fancy Nancy is perfect for first and second graders. They fall in love with this 6-year-old who’s quick wit and charming vocabulary captures their heart. She is very mischievous but very real for today’s classroom.
Age For Fancy Nancy Books
The books themselves are on a third-grade reading level. They are great to use for reading aloud in class. This makes them perfect for your high-level readings and easy to entice them to read more. There are over 30 books in this series, so there is plenty for everyone to grab one if your library is stocked!
Fancy Nancy Vocabulary
Fancy Nancy just loves using fancy words and inspires children to learn them along with her. There are definitely many advantages to having a sophisticated vocabulary, especially at an early age, including improved reading skills. She has the meaning of the words incorporated into the text, or you can use the GLOSSARY in the back and get in a few more standards with each book!
Fancy Nancy Activity Sheets
There is no reason not to incorporate these into your small group reading or book clubs today! I have made print and go sheets that are perfect to cover so many skills.
It is always a good idea to keep books from the library on your own shelf. I line them across the wall under the board and students grab them when they finish early. I love Mercy Watson and the entire Magic Tree House Series. I have lots of units for these books as well.
