Reading Investigations: Realistic or Fantasy?

  • Today’s reading investigation: Realistic Fiction or Fantasy Fiction?
  • Family Sharing: What do you know about Realistic Fiction or Fantasy? *Invite everyone to share. Discuss the titles on the slide above, which books would they choose to explore?
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Guided enquiry: “Today’s investigation is a 3 step inquiry. First draft a list of book titles you would like to know more about. Next fill out a T-Chart using the image below.”
  • Next: Allow everyone 10-15 minutes to put their thoughts on paper.
  • Finally: Using the first slide, invite your learners to discuss which sentences are realistic. If the sentence is fanciful, ask them to turn the sentence into a realistic version.
  • Skill Discussion: “Let’s share what you’ve penned! Encourage everyone to share… including your youngest. Spend a few moments sharing how you made choices when you were their age (include the titles or what your book was about, as well as why it remains a “Good Fit” favorite).
