New Genre Study in Writing
Today we started a new genre study in writing. We will be learning about non-fiction question and answer books. This type of book has many similarities to pattern books because they have a repetitive structure - question, answer, question, answer. The big difference will be that we will looking at non-fiction books this time. Non-fiction books can be highly motivating to first graders. They love to find books about topics that they are interested in. I hope that we can take this interest and use it to inspire the students to write some great non-fiction question and answer books themselves. I can't wait to see what the next few weeks hold for us.
