Real or Make-Believe: Prelude to Fiction and Nonfiction for Kindergartners

So I am now into my third month teaching kindergarten classes on Monday morning, and we have been talking about stories that are real and make-believe. By the time we get to January, I will introduce the kiddies to fiction and nonfiction, but for this coming week, I have an online interactive and a coloring sheet which talk about real vs. make-believe stories. This list will be added to the Teacher-Librarians page on my blog. Are you an elementary school teacher-librarian? If you have any ideas to share, please comment below.
