Tuesday, January 31st

Today in class, we had a whole-class discussion about our new genre study, historical fiction. Prior to doing any reading, you shared what you knew about historical fiction. Then, you participated in part one of the historical fiction genre study using a picture book. We completed the historical fiction chart as a whole-class, so you could see the expectations for an upcoming task.

All resources can be found in the Historical Fiction folder in Schoology. If you were absent, please be sure you see me for an alternative picture book opportunity.
