We are starting a new reading unit on book series this week. We will be exploring both old favorites and looking at new ones. We want to look deeper at the characters in these series across different books with reading partners. Then in book clubs we will share both the similarities and the differences. We will learn to use what we know about characters to make predictions. We will read to see how characters meet the challenges that they confront in their adventures, and look for the author’s message behind it all.
We will look at the writing craft of the authors and explore how they use strong words, and literary language to bring their stories to life. Finally, we will share our opinions with the world, learning how to support our opinions with reasons and through debate.
We will all look forward to getting to know new characters and their exciting adventures!
