Tell students a funny story about your cat asking you to take him to the store to buy clothes. Ask them if they think it is real (NONFICTION) or not real (FICITON). Then tell them a true story about the last field trip we took. Ask students again, real (FICTION) or not real (NONFICTION)? Read Froggy Rides a Bike. As you read, ask students to pick out the obvious FICTION parts of the story. As a second part of this “hook session,” ask students to help you to create a “Wordle” image to describe both terms: nonfiction and fiction. Do this on the LCD projector so that students can see this Web 2.0 tool. Session 2: Purpose and Objectives: This activity uses previously read books to help students determine if they are fiction or nonfiction.
