Fiction and Non Fiction

Hello Everyone!
I am going to be quick today as I have a ton of studying to do for my ESL Certification, and tomorrow is Valentine's Day!  I've got a lot to do to get ready for the festivities and love!!  Our "Friendship Celebration" should be a lot of fun!!
Anyway, today we worked hard on the main differences between fiction and nonfiction books.  We talked about the kinds of pictures, words, elements, and the reason for reading both genres. We made this anchor chart to help us remember.  With all these differences in mind, our next job was to sort through a mound of animal books.  Each kiddo chose several books to look through and deposit into two different groups, fiction and non fiction. They did a perfect job!!!  Way to go guys!!! Now on to using the nonfiction selections to reasearch!!

Thanks for stopping by to take a quick peek into our wonder-filled world!  See you soon!
Now, bring on the chocolate!!

Joyfully,
Nancy
