Fact and opinion

Focus Skill

Fact and Opinion

  • A factis something that can be seen or proved.

  • An opinion is a person’s thoughts or feelings.

  • Clue words such as think and believe can help readers know that a sentence states an opinion.


Turn to page 156 in your book

Turn to page 156 in your book.

  • Read the paragraph in the blue box on page 157.

  • When I look at the first sentence, I see the words I think. This tells me that “baseball has an interesting history” is someone’s opinion. An opinion cannot be checked because different people think different things are interesting.

  • The second sentence is about something that happened in history. Dates can be checked in a reference book, and if they are correct, the sentence states a fact.


Lesson 6 day 1

In the mid-1800s, the first baseball teams were formed in the United States.

At first, there were no rules for how to play.

Alexander Cartwright wrote the first set of rules for baseball.

I think baseball has an interesting history.

Getting written rules was the best thing to happen to baseball.

Players everywhere could then play the game the same way.

As we read the paragraph on page 157 we will stop and decide whether each sentence is a fact or opinion. factopinion


Listening comprehension

Listening Comprehension

  • You will listen to a story about two boys whose fathers helped build the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

  • Have you ever seen any large bridges?

  • Here is a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge.


Listening comprehension cont

Listening Comprehension (cont.)

  • “Pop’s Bridge” is historical fiction, a type of fiction that combines a made-up story with real events from the past.

  • Listen as I read the first four paragraphs.

  • I know the Golden Gate Bridge is real. I know it opened in 1937, so this story happens before then. The boy telling the story sounds like a real boy. I think this story is historical fiction because it is about events that really happened, but the characters are not real people.


Listening comprehension cont1

Listening Comprehension (cont.)

  • You should listen to historical fiction to enjoy it and to learn about the time, people, places, and events from history that are discovered.

  • Remember that facts are statements that can be seen or proved and opinions are what people believe, think, or feel.

  • Historical fiction includes many facts to make the setting seem real.

  • The characters may state opinions.

Sophia is a small girl, one of the smallest in our class. But her personality is BIG when she wants it to be. When Sophia reads in class, her voice is loud and clear. Believe me, everyone pays attention when she reads. Sophia loves the color red. On the first day of school, she wore a red shirt and wanted all of us to wear red shirts, too.
