Last week we looked at creating a plot chart from a literary fiction book. As a class we listened to the book, “Thank you Mr. Falker.” We then created a plot chart, and later turned that plot chart in for a summary. Students did this in partners and made a plot chart on their own. Next week, the plot chart will be turned into a summary for a grade. We will come back to this a lot this school year. If you are looking for extra practice, there are lots of great literary (tells a story) fiction books read aloud on http://www.storylineonline.net/.
Please excuse messy handwriting! When I get excited and we get going…. the handwriting is the first to go!
