Wednesday, February 1st

Today in class, we quickly reviewed the elements of historical fiction. Then, you participated in part two of the historical fiction genre study using another picture book. You completed the historical fiction chart in small groups, 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.

Afterwards, we had a class discussion asking what you know and/or learned from your parents/grandparents about the 1960s. After hearing what some of you learned from your family, you got the opportunity to preview the 1960’s Highlights Timeline. This is all very important to think about for the upcoming whole-class novel!
