What’s Coming Up – Week of February 26- March 2, 2018

Hello parents!

Check out the happenings next week and some photos of some of the research we are doing in ELA!  In the photos, partners are listening to each other’s compelling questions, topics, subtopics and facts that they are discovering through the research of their colonial topics.  We have encouraged students to research using mel.org, which has a set of databases which include free articles, ebooks, and other general information.  We have also been practicing with the basics of citing our sources.  If you have some experience with this, feel free to start a conversation with your child on what effective research looks like and how, sometimes, we need to use some GRIT to find what we’re looking for!

Enjoy your weekend!
