Fiction vs. Non-fiction

For most of this first grade year we have been reading and writing fiction.  We have studied small moments, the fiction of author Kevin Henkes and even tried our hand at writing our own fictional stories.  Now at the halfway point in the school year, we are going to switch, and read and write non-fiction.  As part of the new study we are reorganizing our genre library to include more non-fiction choices.  We have divided our individual books into fiction and non-fiction, packed up some of the fiction and added more non-fiction choices.  We have had some wonderful discussions on how to know if a book is fiction or non-fiction! What we have discovered is there are so many "hybrid" books!
