Welcome Back!

Happy School Year! It has been wonderful to welcome our students back during this past week. I've enjoyed seeing them again and getting library books back into their hands (where they belong)! During our first visit this year, we reviewed and practiced library procedures. And, of course, we all read together! I'm so happy that Chris Van Dusen recently published the perfect book to kick off the school year.

Famous Mainer Research

Dear 4th Graders,
You are beginning your famous Mainer project this week! As you can see from the image above, you are going to go through LOTS of steps in order to successfully complete this research process. Today I will talk to you about the research process and help you start your research. Here are our learning targets:

  • I can explain the first 3 steps in the Big 6 research model.
  • I can use the library to search for research material on my famous Mainer.
  • I can locate a research book on the shelves.
  • No book?! I can look in an encyclopedia for my famous Mainer.
