Spring stories are engaging students in kindergarten. I am challenging students to be spring detectives and look for signs of spring. We have been reading a number of books that show the transition from winter to spring, show growing plants and share stories of animals in the spring. Soon we are on to gardens!
Can you find the facts that authors use when writing a fiction story? Grade 1 students gather facts while we read a nonfiction book. We look for these facts as we read a related fiction story together.
Grade 2 classes are working on their first independent research projects in library, researching an animal and then using that work to create an animal riddle.
Grade 3 students have just completed research on a topic they chose from a list. Now we are enjoying a chapter book by Bruce Coville. Soon we will begin researching a famous american!
Students in Grade 4 are researching a National Monument. They are working in groups to create a green screen video which they will edit and share with the class. This will be followed by a Kahoot! quiz where the groups will see how well the other students learned from their presentation!
