Dear 4th graders, You will be wrapping up your Wax Museum projects soon and are responsible for a bibliography. You worked so hard to learn this during your Native American project, and so I know you'll do great. Let's do a quick review of the information you need to include in a bibliography.

  • What do you include for a book bibliography entry?
  • Where do you find the information you need for a book bibliography entry?
  • What do you include for a website bibliography entry?

Dear 3rd graders,
You have been busy studying folktales in the library and the classroom. Today we will work on locating a folktale in the library to check out. Here are our learning targets:

  • I can use the library catalog to locate a folktale that interests me.
  • I can locate a specific folktale on the library shelves.
  • I can choose a "just right" folktale to check out and read at home.

Whadya Want to Know?

Dear 4th graders,
You are going to be doing research soon in your classroom. Let's practice using a MARVEL database to get comfortable. Today you will be able to research anything that you find interesting and want to share out with the class!

Here are our learning targets:

  • I can open our class padlet in a new tab.
  • I can access Britannica Online School edition and search the elementary level.
  • I can post an image on the padlet below (drag the image to your downloads, then drag it to your padlet).
  • I can cite the image that I used by copying and pasting.
