We talked a lot about point of view at JFB. Cassandra and Emma asked and answered excellent questions about first person point of view and complex story structure. I loved that they understood that an author can tell a story from multiple first person points of view in a linear, chronological way, or each character can start from the beginning to tell the same story/scene from his/her perspective. Some kids get confused by that and wonder if it's a flashback or wonder why they're hearing the same story again. What a great discussion! Ask your JFB kids if they remember what omniscient and limited omniscient points of view are! :-) We're on chapter "Lunch" at JFB. They're about to meet Summer.
Some parents are finishing the book - what do you think?? I'm trying to circulate the books to the next parent as soon as I get one back. It's so fun to have you reading with us! I already know what our next read aloud is going to be, so I'll make sure I get multiple copies again for parents!
