Overview[ edit ] The concept goes back at least as far as Aristotle who, in Poetics, referred to narration and action as different modes or manner of representing something. Evan Marshall, in The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing noted that writers should know what they are doing at all times. He described what he called fiction-writing modes—the types of writing of which all fiction is made.
Sarah Winchell I have been placing a daily emphasis on fiction and non-fiction texts with my kindergarteners and first graders.
After we had some experiences working with various texts in the classroom I asked the children to help me make an anchor chart comparing the two types of texts. The first graders had more ideas to offer mainly because they have more school experience but the kinders were able to add to the conversation.
This is one of our first efforts together. Our anchor chart comparing fiction and non-fiction text features. I could tell they still needed support to understand and to compare types of text. I began copying the covers of the books we were reading in class and placing them on the appropriate sides of the chart.
This simple idea has been so helpful to the children. Now after I read a book the children ask me to put the book cover up.
I really love this idea and I plan on growing this area throughout the year. I introduced the idea of a hybrid text to them this week. Books like The Magic School Bus and similar books that include elements of fiction and non-fiction are considered by some authors to be hybrid.
So that begs the question do we start a new area in the middle of our anchor chart…well we will see what the littles think.
They use the chart during their daily conversations about books in the classroom. It is always a great moment for teachers when students connect with learning! Go Grab it Now!!
