In the month of September, we are going to begin exploring different literary genres. The first genre will be fables which often teaches a moral or lesson using animal characters. Students will enjoy creative activities that will continue this study of fables. The second genre will be biographies. We will read about the life of Johnny Appleseed and talk about his life and character traits. Thirdly we will talk about fiction vs. nonfiction and read a fun fictional book called "Fletcher and the falling Leaves." With the first day of Autumn on September 22, this will be a way we learn the changes that take place during the season of Fall. And lastly, we will talk about the different elements of a fairy tale and read some classics by Hans Christian Anderson. Some of the upper Elementary grades will even be able to make up their own Fairy Tale. I'm excited to see what they come up with.
