Reading and Writing
In small group reading, each group is reading a historical fiction book based on the holocaust. They are extremely interested in these books, and their discussions have been fantastic.
In whole group reading, we have been working on identifying reading "signposts." These are elements that authors often put in fiction books. By identifying and asking questions about these signposts, we are able to better understand the story and characters.
