Wow! What a beautiful Monday it was back at school... total sarcasm. I am glad I was inside. It rained and rained.
Today we took our Genre studies to a whole other level. I introduced Point of view today. We of course added a Point of View flip book to their reading journal so that they would have a resource to look back on. We had too much fun. We read The Three Little Pigs and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs to compare and contrast 1st person and 3rd person Point of View. It was amazing how many students weren't familiar with The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. I just love it. I actually had several kids in may last class that thought it was hilarious and had a hard time controlling their laughter. (I got these awesome ideas from Nicole Shelby on Teacher’s Notebook.)
I also decided to discuss with them fractured fairy tales. I gave them a project that will be due in a few weeks. They have to write their own fairy tale and then compare and contrast it with the original. I am sooo excited to see what awesome posters get turned in. I will upload pictures of at a later time, so keep on the lookout. I am going to upload the project instruction and rubric. (Actually, I have no idea how to upload... send me a shoutout and let me know how.) Let me know if you have any questions!
What an AWESOME start to the week... Genre sort quiz tomorrow!
