Elementary Library Media (K-5)
Reading for intellectual, personal, and emotional growth
Differentiate between literary (fiction) and informational (non-fiction) text.
Fiction/Narrative and Non-fiction/Informational
Students will use a visual, physically involved activity to understand and categorize fiction/narrative and non-fiction/informational books.
Goldilocks' Chair - Stem Design (Grade K-2)
After reading Goldilocks aloud, students will retell identifying the main events and the problem. In collaboration with the classroom teacher they will
complete a chair design challenge. The lesson will close by discussing how experiences with fiction and nonfiction can help them solve real life problems with people and objects.
Round Robin Books (Grade K-1)
Using a musical chairs format, students will rotate around the circle -- with a book on each chair around the circle. When the music stops students will sit, pick up the book on their chair, and take turns sharing if their book is fiction or informational and why they would want to read it (the purpose for reading -- entertainment, to learn something, etc).
