This week we will wrap up our study of historical fiction. I wish you could hear the discussions that we have had! After reading to the kids, we always stop and talk about what we noticed about the text. This often includes the author's style and purpose and requires deep critically thinking! A couple weeks ago, as a pre-assessment, I asked the students to write down what they thought historical fiction was. I will have them do this again on Wednesday of this week. I am excited to see the growth in their understanding!
PLEASE be sure that your child is reading and/or writing at least two hours a week. I found this really neat infographic:
