Our comprehension skill this week has been realism and fantasy. In our reading series, Reading Street, this skill is taught along with a story called The Lady in the Moon. Not my favorite story in this series. I have been doing activities with my kids in the afternoon that involve Alice in Wonderland. Some of my kids seem to think that fantasy MUST involve an animal talking or wearing clothes. I thought using Alice in Wonderland would show that there are some elements that can be made up that have nothing to do with animals, like Alice drinking the potion that made her shrink. This has really helped reinforce the skill for this week.
I have uploaded the literacy packet onto teachers pay teachers. It has the pattern for this craft that my kids worked on this week. Here's the link
