This is a place for students from grades 4 - 7 to write about their research projects, book club book reviews and to learn to use 21st Century technology skills. It is an invitation to see what students in my library research classes are researching, learning and sharing. We learn from positive, constructive feedback not negative criticism. Please notice our successes, not our mistakes.
Division 25 are our grade 3/4 French Immersion students who have been working on a mini-research project on dragons. They had to look up 'dragon' in our OPAC (Online Public Access Catelogue) and see what dragon books we had in our school library. Then they had to choose one book that was either, non-fiction, fairytale or easy. Then they had to find the book and describe the dragon in the book. They wrote their descriptive paragraphs on paper and today they ventured out into cyberspace to post their paragraphs on their very own blog! They did an amazing job!
Some of their dragons were from fairytales or cultural, some were real and some were from picture books.
Next week we will add an image into their dragon blog posts!
