Fishin' for Fiction and Nonfition!

Hello Everyone!
We are so getting into our whole aquatic habitat unit and have loved so many of the books we have found that have to do with the living things that make water their home. The past couple of days we have spent a lot of time comparing and contrasting the fiction and nonfiction books.  We created this little anchor chart and began sorting our books according to what we discovered.  It was interesting to find some of the nonfiction books that looked like they belonged in the fiction category.  Dr. Seuss has some wonderful selections from which the kids were really learning facts!  

Here's a mini poster that covers the same ideas as my anchor chart.

I've got to keep swimming to keep my head above water at this time of the year, so...Thanks for stopping by to take a peek into our W.O.W.!! Gotta go!!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your valuable gifts and talents with other teachers. This is very generous of you! If you are teaching the Common Core (or will so soon), the two terms have changed to "Literature" (for fiction) and "Informational Text" (for nonfiction) We are now in our 2nd year of the Core in NC. Just thought you might want to know. Thanks again for all you do!

  4. Your whole unit has been so cute and covering some really great lessons. I'm sad though because it won't let me open it. Every time I try it says there is an error! :(


  5. Thanks for sharing this unit! It is wonderful and will be perfect when we study fish in May. I love your blog and appreciate your great ideas. Thank you for being so generous with your units!

  6. W.O.W. doesn't even begin to cover it! Thanks again for another amazing unit to use. So practical as well.
