* We looked at comparing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry texts to each other and we noticed that each genre has different text features. Students learned that if they are paying close attention to fiction texts and poetry they can learn new information on a topic even though it's original purpose is not to teach like nonfiction texts do.
This week we looked at some examples of fairy tales and what they had in them...magic, a happy beginning, a good character, a bad character, a setting, a problem, a solution, and a happy ending. The kids then began planning their fairy tale by creating a bubble map of their ideas. I love some of the ideas they have come up with so far!
- It was so great seeing all of you at our student led conferences this week! The kids were so excited to share their learning with you. It was a great time for the kids to own their learning and to reflect on what they can do really well and to set goals for themselves on what they want to work on. I hope you found this as informative and as beneficial as I did!
