We are beginning to write research reports in writing. The students have compiled a list of topics that they are interested in writing about. I have asked the children to decide with you 1 topic that they would like to write about.
I wish I had enough books about animals and presidents in my classroom or in our school library for the students to research but I do not. So, I would like each student to go to the local library and check out at least 2 books on an animal or president of their choosing. I would also like at least 1 printed article about the topic. www.nationalgeographic.com/kids is a great website for animals and http://www.whitehouse.gov/ is a great website for US Presidents.
Please send these into school no later than Monday, February 27, 2012. The children will keep all materials in their cubbies and I will send them home in time so that you do not have any late fees at the library.
