Kindergarten students have begun to look at grade appropriate chapter books, and we reviewed the parts of a book we have been discussing all year.
First graders continued a unit on biographies, learning that this type of book is true, about a real person, who made a significant contribution.
Second graders wrote their own fiction stories - using all the story elements we learned about in library - setting, characters, problem and solution.
Third graders had much excitement during their library classes with "book auctions."
Fourth graders finished a research project about animals.
Fifth graders continue their library research projects. They identified a topic, found sources of information for their topic, discussed how to brainstorm questions, learned what a primary source is, learned how to evaluate a web site, and discussed plagiarism.
