5th Grade Library News
What has been going on with 5th grade in the library?
More research...and a little poetry
Beyond that, we have also been exploring poetry in honor of National Poetry Month. As students have gradually been leading up to their poetry slam, they have been exploring lots of different kinds of poetry, from traditional forms to free form to music to beat poetry.

There are sooo many more than I can possibly mention here. My own kids have played Scribblenauts on their Nintendo DS devices for years. Both kids are now learning French on Duolingo. The apps/sites I listed here are just to give you a taste of what is out there. You can also Google "best apps for [name your device]" to find more. Commonsensemedia.org is one site where I found some of these apps.
