We are learning about purposes of reading and how to tell the difference between a book that is for entertainment and a book for that is to inform. First, we looked at some books for entertainment and discussed qualities such as talking animals, fun stories and pictures that were drawn. Then, we looked at some books to inform and discussed qualities such as photographs, table of contents or glossary and gives us information. Then we sorted the books by entertain or inform. Finally, we compared a the Three Bears ( entertain) to real bears ( inform). We created a Venn diagram to compare the characters in a entertain book to the characters in a inform book.
