Time for nonfiction! I'm loving it! The kiddos are, too.
Today, we focused on simply distinguishing between fiction and nonfiction text. I used my fiction vs. nonfiction activity from my Nonfiction Comprehension set. I premade this anchor chart, gave directions, and the kiddos got to work.
I laid out my books and let my kiddos go searching! They had to find one nonfiction book and write the title on the pink post it note. Then, they had to find one fictional story and write it on the green post-it note. When they were done, they stuck them up to the fiction and nonfiction anchor chart.
They got a pink post-it for nonfiction and a green post-it for fiction.
Then, as a class, we checked over the titles to make sure everyone's sounded correct.
Then, we did a mini lesson on text features and worked through a cut and paste together.
These activities are both in my nonfiction unit! This was a big step for them, so we did a lot of guided practice together. We used one book under the document camera for a sample.
