Happy Spring!



    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!

    Grade 1

    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

    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

    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!

    Grade 4

    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!
