What's Happening In Reading...
Posted by Mary Clyde Peacock at 9/18/2013
We've been learning so much in reading! We started off learning about 3 types of literature: prose, poetry, and drama. This week, we've been talking about elements of literature. We've learned all about setting, characters, and plot! Be sure to ask your child about their interactive notebook for reading - it has become an excellent way to look back and see (easily) what we've already covered! We've done several activities in class to practice picking out the setting, characters/character traits, and plot of different books and I am loving the intelligent discussions between the kids on our team! I can't wait to see how their love of reading grows over the course of the year - even if they hate it right now!! :)
