Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 12.00.33 PMHoly Family Third Grade Students were working on identifying the author’s point of view reading nonfiction books. We have been talking all week about how an author feels about a topic or their perspective of what’s important. Author’s always write for a purpose. Author’s want the reader to walk away after reading a book with new knowledge (nonfiction) or a moral (fiction).

Each student borrowed a nonfiction book from the library. They had to read the whole book. Then they were to pick two sections of the book, headings, and write what the author’s point of view was for each and how the student knew their statement was correct.
