Week of 2/12/2019

Posted by Kerrie Huizinga on 2/11/2019

Kindergartners and First Graders are continuing to listen to books from the 2019 Monarch Award: Illinois' K-3 Readers Choice Award list. This week's book is John Deere, That's Who! by Tracy Nelson Maurer. So far we have listened to 16 out of the 20 nominated books. Next week, kindergarten and first grade will vote for their favorite book!


Second Graders will review the parts of a non-fiction text including: title, heading, bold print, italics, table of contents, glossary and index.


Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders are continuing to become research experts on the topics they chose! They are also learning how to develop a keyword search using Kiddle, how to skim and scan a website for information, recognize what makes a website trustworthy and how to properly cite our sources with the help of Citation Generator.
