Narrative vs. Expository Text

This week in the RBE Library, we are going to use the new picture book, Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet to show students what a great expository text looks like.

We will use this graphic organizer to record information about Tony Sarg.

Below is a YouTube Video I will also show students before we read so they will have some background knowledge on the parade and the giant balloons that are in the parade.

Balloons Over Broadway tells the story of puppeteer Tony Sarg, the man who first invented the helium balloons that have become the trademark of the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This is a wonderful book that you can check out at the RBE Library!
