This week in library we are honoring Veterans Day through stories and letters. 1st graders are reading Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine, and a Miracle by Brian Dennis & Mary Nether. 2nd graders are reading The Wall by Eve Bunting (a fiction book) and comparing it to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (a nonfiction book). 5th graders are playing history detective while doing a primary source analysis of a letter from a WWII soldier to his wife.
3rd graders continue to work on their American Indian research projects. Working in groups, students are using print books and the PebbleGo Next database on their iPads to find accurate information about their tribes.
4th graders are reading an article about Veterans Day from World Book, and learning how to cite a database in EasyBib.
