Projects

IIM in Kindergarten!


I have had a great time this week working with Chang's class doing some IIM research. We took Notefacts from books and the awesome database Pebble Go which is located under Online Library Resources. I loved being to able to work with them as they thought about key words and wrote down important information about what they learned.


Searches and Microsoft Word Help


I also had fun giving a quick mini lesson to Kibort's classes on how to find and print images for their animal research projects!


I would love to be able to assist you and your students too! I can help your students individually, small groups or whole group - whatever works best for y'all!
