Reflection: Classroom Setup Magic Tree House Ancient Greece Dynamic Duo: Day 1 Let the Pair Begin! - Section 3: Lesson Part One: Informational Text Main Idea & Supporting Detail Quotes


You may notice that I've color coded my anchor chart and the students' packet this week with red and green colors.  This matches our classroom library baskets.  Green baskets contain all nonfiction books, and red baskets are all fiction books.  The students recognized this right away! My hope was that they would notice and the colors would help them differentiate between our informational CCSS for the week (main idea and supporting details), and fiction CCSS this week (writing chapter summaries).
