Elm Street Media Matters
Media Lessons in Full Swing!
Here is what we will be studying this 9 weeks:
K- Students will be reviewing and analyzing the elements of a fiction story while studying the works of Jan Brett. Students also will learn and use Google Earth! We will participate in Read Across America, and begin basic research skills!
1st- Students will be solidifying the differences between fiction and nonfiction text, reviewing nonfiction text features, and learning to research on Pebblego.
3rd- Students will begin the steps to effectively research the branches of government. We will review how to develop guiding questions, find keywords for internet searching, use GALILEO, and acquire atlas skills. We will also have a complete reference source review.
5th- Students will review theme, idioms, and point of view within a text. They will also have a thorough review of reference sources and proper research methods.
