Right now in reading we are learning about characters. We have discussed the difference between main characters and supporting characters. Ask your child to tell you the difference between them and how they know.
Main characters: appear in a majority of action or pictures in the book and often are on the cover or in the title of the book
Supporting characters: usually have some sort of relationship to the main character and do not appear in as many scenes or pictures.
Today we watched a Brain Pop video about characters. You can access it by clicking on the picture below. I will send the login/password info to you since it is a subscription site I can't put the information on the blog.
