For the past three weeks, the students have studied about famous children’s authors that mostly write chapter books for upper elementary age students. The students read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl and learned all about his life as an example. The students then paired up to research their own famous author. Each pair wrote a biography about the author and read a book by the author. The students then wrote summaries of the book, wrote the narrative elements of the book, critiqued the book, and created a book bag to represent the book. The students took all of this information and created a PowerPoint presentation to share with the class. The students put a lot of hard work into this, and it paid off. They did a great job!
