Grade 3 ELA Module 1, Unit 3, Lesson 3

Waiting for the Biblioburro is narrative nonfiction: a story about real people and actual events. Students have read other narrative nonfiction in this unit: Rain School and Thank You, Mr. Falker. This lesson provides a bridge, helping students move to nonfiction. Students will begin to think about how they can collect information from different types of texts. The lessons that follow will focus on more typical informational text used to help students start shifting from narrative to narrative nonfiction; students’ next step will be to informational texts.
