Pirate Points from Mrs. Lee's Class


We have become researchers in our class! Each student picked a topic he/she is interested in and wants to know more about. Then, we developed questions we wanted to know about our topic and learned ways to organize information. We are using books and the internet to research these these questions.
This is a huge task for 6 & 7 year olds! I am so proud of the kids for persevering and really working to find information. With that being said, we still have a lot of work to do to get our information. If you are able at home the next few days, could you please help your child research their topic? If so, I will send home their research folders. One great resource that is developmentally approriate is SC Discus, a virtual library. Here is the login information:
