Nonfiction Conventions

One of the things that we teach first graders about nonfiction is the conventions that are specific to the genre. The Mall-ards standard-based bulletin board this month is a great example of the Nonfiction Conventions Notebook that each student created with a definition of each convention and an example. Each example was created after a mini-lesson that investigated the convention by the teacher showing examples and then the students finding examples in non-fiction books. Enjoy the results below.
