Throughout the year we have been learning the difference between Fiction and Non-Fiction books. We have been developing our skills in finding clues to identify each.
Here are some of the clues we look for:
After reading, we use a variety of graphic organizers to show our learning.
When reading Fiction, we use listening center recording sheets. These organizers focus on the characters, setting and favourite part of the story. This week we read Grandpa Dan’s Toboggan Ride (here is a read aloud video of the story from Youtube.
We have started to focus more on Non-Fiction this term, and learning how to write a response (early note taking skills). We have been using the non fiction news to organize our information.
Last week, we read a book about Bears.
Next week our book is about Blizzards…let’s hope it doesn’t bring us one!!!
If you want to read some Non-Fiction together at home, you can check out BookFlix at the BPL.
