Ms. Figueiredo-Strydom’s second through fourth grade Title I students at Holy Family Catholic are

  • learning about,
  • reading, and
  • finally, responding to Fiction and Nonfiction books.

To start with, the students identified the nature of fiction and nonfiction books. They also identified categories within them.

Then the students responded to the literature using various methods of responding.
