Non-Fiction Monday: Fiction vs. Non-fiction
Students receive a copy of a Scholastic book order pamphet. With a partner (or their little buddy), students discuss each book, and decide whether it is fiction or non-fiction and how they know. Students then cut out the book picture and glue it onto a chart - one side being labeled fiction, the other non-fiction. My students will be a big help in the cutting and gluing department, and I hope they will be able to coach their little buddy in deciding which category each book belongs in.
This idea would fit into the lessons for teaching the Reading Power strategy 'Zoom In.'
