KES Library Update
What we've been up to
Grade 4 wrote some great reflection pieces about their experience painting the ceiling tiles. Then they learned and practiced placing a hold on Destiny so that everyone has a fair chance at having a turn with highly requested books and Great Stone Face Books.
Grade 5 continued with finding information from various sources and learned about being critical of websites and what to look for in a reliable source of information. We used the CARS checklist to guide us. We reviewed plagiarism and citing sources as well.
We finished the month discussing picture books with specific questions in mind and also our reactions to the stories.
All grade 4 and 5 students have the opportunity to be placed on my Hall of Fame by reading at least 5 Great Stone Face books. We start each class reading one of the Great Stone Face books together. This month we also learned about plagiarism, it's consequences, and the easy steps that can be taken to avoid any problems.
