Language Arts and Literature Mini-Book to Narrate About the Burgess Bird Book for Children

Many teachers choose to use literature and books to teach skills.

Literature comes in a variety of genres and styles, with categories progressing from word books to picture books then chapter books and finally novels. Through the study of literary elements such as character, setting, theme, plot, and style, each book we allow our learners to read comes alive to tell unique and living stories. To help our students get the most out of what they read, we created mini-books about various works of literature. From fairy tales to novels, we have allowed our children to demonstrate reading comprehension and reading analysis through open narration or prompted recall writing (or drawing) activities. We have witnessed for ourselves and heard positive feedback from other teachers and parents about how these little books have helped their children transition from oral narration to beginning written narration.
