I love the Book Fair, and I always take my son to his school's to buy books. In the fall, we went, and I told Ginny Beth that she could get one book. I figured she would pick the Sophia the First book with the amulet, but she didn't. She chose this 2 in 1 book:Anna's Act of Love/Elsa's Icy Magic .
The book is a very shortened version of the movie, but I really like that it tells the story from both sisters' points of view. Since I read it before I saw the movie, I had a better understanding of how the girls actually felt in the story. Usually I don't think about using these types of books in my classroom because they are not super quality literature, but this lends itself well to teaching point of view.
The reader really gets a good feel for how each sister feels and what they want as the final outcome. The movie is still excellent, but this book is perfect for reading, even in the classroom!
I leave you now with my little "Elsa". We have been trying new hairstyles, and this one is one of her favorites!
How do you teach point of view in your classroom?
