During this unit, we are discussing the big question "What makes a family?"  We have talked about what families do together and what we know about families.  Students have talked in small groups and talked with partners.  We've created circle maps to organize our thinking.  In the coming weeks we will make predictions.  We will share characteristics of realistic fiction.  Author's purpose will be a topic of conversation.  When reading at home, you might ask your child why he/she thinks the author wrote the book:  to persuade, to inform, to entertain (PIE).
