This lesson stands alone as a step-by-step way to introduce the concept of fiction and nonfiction. It is also an excerpt from my larger unit- The First 21 Days, a must for your Balanced Literacy classroom. In this lesson, you will introduce the anchor chart and sentence frames students will use all year to talk about fiction and nonfiction and prove their conclusions. If you and your students enjoy using the anchor charts featured in this resource, they are available on my TpT store- First in Line. Thanks for shopping and, as always, Blessings!
