Literary Concepts

Fifth graders are reading the chapter book Frindle by Andrew Clements. Frindle is the story of a smart, mischievous fifth grader that likes to pull pranks at school. He comes up with a creative prank for one of his teachers by inventing a new word.

Two of the literary concepts students are learning about are character traits and providing text evidence to support the specific trait. In addition, students drew a picture of one of the main characters using what they have learned about the character during their reading. Students presented their completed posters on a Flip Grid video. Way to go fifth graders!
