We just wrapped up our literature circle books last week. The students are now working on their final projects for the books in their small groups. Some groups are choosing to create game boards, while others are choosing to create posters with detailed summaries. The students will be given time every day this week to finish up their projects. We are hoping to be ready to present on Friday or Monday. We are also reviewing researching skills so we will be ready to start our dinosaur research papers in a few weeks. We’ve worked on paraphrasing and finding valid resources. This week we will be working on synthesizing information from multiple sources and determining cause and effect.
