Mrs. Broadnax's Bulletin
February 10, 2014
We will begin working with historical fiction pieces that supplement what we are working on in Social Studies for the American Revolution. We will work on inferencing character traits, cause and effect, close reading, answering text dependent questions, and point of view. We will also be comparing and contrasting different historical fiction pieces.
We have been working on a story for "If I was Trapped in a Snowglobe" which is ficitonal narrative. We will move into personal narrative and work on telling "small moment" stories. We will be discussing author's craft.
