Reflection: Modeling Who writes the story? Who does the illustrations? - Section 2: Activity


This activity was very repetitive.  It is through repetition that my students learn a skill.  The more we do it and say it the quicker they will own the skill.  Knowing print concepts including the author and illustrator are important to know.  This activity is based on a CCSS.  Students need to know how to refer to the parts of a book appropriately.  In upper grades they will be referring to the author and illustrator as part of reports and essays.  After introducing this activity as a whole group.  I took the protected books and put them at my reading station and included this activity as part of our review/warp up prior to reading.  After reviewing it for a week, all my students were proficient in identifying all the concepts of a book.  YAY!
