Intended Learning Outcomes:
Review definition of and/or differences between fiction and non- fiction text. Show examples of each as you review.
Review instructions for how to play musical chairs and what students will be doing as the play round robin books: Walk around the circle as you listen to the music. When the music stops pick up the book on your chair and sit down. Think about what kind of book you have and why you might want to read it.
Make sure each student is in front of a chair ready to start. Start the music playing and having students start walking around. After 30 to 40 seconds stop the music and have students grab their book and sit down. Give them a minute to look at and think about the book they have. Ask students to hold up their book if it is information then have students hold up their book if it is fiction. Also take turns doing this for the purpose for reading: entertainment, to learn something. Repeat this process as many times and time permits.
Variation: You can go around the circle one at a time to have students share what kind of book they have and the purpose for reading it.
Exit ticket: give students the attached page with pictures of fiction and non-fiction books. Have students circle the non-fiction book and the purpose for reading that book (entertainment or to learn).
Strategies For Diverse Learners:
Exit ticket: circle type of text (fiction or non-fiction you can decide which one you want them to identify) and the reason for reading that chosen type of text (entertainment or learning.
