Reading

Nonfiction is a rich, engaging genre offering a variety of topics that will entice any reader! Students have a natural curiosity and wonder about many things. Nonfiction encourages them to closely observe and learn about all that is around them. We will learn how to apply specific reading skills and strategies that will enable them to discover facts, identify the big ideas, and learn new information about the topics they are reading about.



Writing

We are going to be studying the genre of biography for the next few weeks.  Right now we are immersing ourselves in all the biographies we can find and read. We are learning about this important genre in preparation to write a biography in this unit.



There are a lot of ways you can help our class learn about and appreciate biographies. 

  • Share a biography you’ve read and enjoyed with your child. 

  • Ask your child about the biographies we are reading in class. Who is he and she learning about?

  • Read a biography at home and then ask your child for help with understanding the “features” of that book.

  • Look for biographical materials wherever you go. Ask your child to help you look for and find all the places you might encounter biographies( television, movies, etc.).
