Book Fair Family Night

Don't forget...Tonight (Tuesday) , Cox will be hosting Family Night in the Book Fair. Please join us in the library for wonderful literary selections and our Silent Auction for better teeth! Everyone wants a healthy smile, right? Yes! 

Our Reading focus this 9 weeks is non-fiction yet we are tackling a historical fiction novel as our primary tool. Please ask your child why we would do such a thing? Wink wink. 
Answers should resemble this response: 
- Historical fiction uses an actual setting in our history and provides accurate information within the text. 
-While the characters in the novel are fictitious, they represent families that were present during these historical events and show thoughts and feelings these events evoked. 

Reading Corner

Our novel is I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912.    
While we are enjoying the format of a novel, we are focusing more on the non-fiction information including, but not limited to:
-ship dynamics
-social class
-technology (lack thereof)

In fact, check us out completing our Titanic Web Quest:
