Reading Non-Fiction Books
Last week we started a reading unit of study on non-fiction books. We are learning the similarities and differences between fiction and non-fiction along with many of the text features (see the photo below) of non-fiction. We have learned that non-fiction does not always have to be read from beginning to end but that we can pick and choose the sections to read or to read first. A side benefit of all of this is that we are also learning some cool facts about some great non-fiction topics like the Titanic, Race Car driving, Ponies, Dinosaurs, Rocks and Minerals, Lizards and many other animals and lots more. We are finding that non-fiction is fun to read, too.
Our non-fiction text features chart. We will continue to add to it all week.


Art
Ms. Pam would like everyone to know that the rest of the clay self-portraits that are on display at school are ready to go home. You may come in at any time to pick up your child's self-portrait if you would like - just please be sure that your child knows you have it. Otherwise, they will be sent home with your child on Friday at the end of the day.
