Follow Up on Fiction and Non Fiction!
Some of the presentations I share, are long and naturally span over the course of two days. I followed up on the lesson, and while teaching, realized it could be a bit funner, especially since we teach kindergarten students! Anyhow, in the middle of the lesson, I figured out the best way to demonstrate the difference would be to create a fiction and non fiction story about myself! I know we all choose to share different pieces of ourselves, but I have always been open about my age and my first name. I respect if you're not, so if you're looking for ideas, just adjust what I am going to suggest as today was the most animated and engaged I think they have been all year! I shared a non fiction story about myself as a teacher with a fake name who ate all of her students, they were the students but I made silly rhymes with their first names and they knew I was talking about them. I then decided to eat them as There was an Old Lady is a favourite in our class! They loved it, especially when I decided I didn't want to eat them :) Even threw in and then the virus was over and we all went back to school happily ever after! They were awesome, it was such a cute moment, and figured I would share.
I also shared a non fiction version of myself that they weren't quite as engaged in, I can't blame them as my version of there was an Old Ketopreet who Swallowed her Students was much funner! Anyways I connected it to them, our school, how much we miss our students and how we can't wait to see them! They appreciated the ending, as did my soul! Here is to hoping! Either way, out of the connections came the following edits to the slideshow originally posted.
Next focus will be on non fiction and I suspect it will a lot more fun! Hope this helps! Adding the original link as well for the full lesson.
