Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
This week has gone by entirely too fast! We had our pizza party in class yesterday and had a great time sharing "bread and cheese" together. We discussed the finals schedule during our lunch time and then went to work on our research papers.
Sixth graders are hard at work researching about what inspired them from our Museum field trip. Students are writing their papers on their Google Docs within the school district. I am able to see their progress online and make suggestions and/or corrections to their writing. Students learned how to add an MLA bibliography using Easy Bib within Google Docs. What a great time saver along with giving credit to their resources to prevent plagiarism.
The research writing is a little bit of a challenge to the students, but they are grasping the idea a little more this year as last year that were subjected to the idea and the writing process. This year, the research paper is for a grade and the students have been given a rubric as their guideline. The paper and their presentation is worth 200 points and is due next Monday while they are in class with me at 8:00-10:00 am. This will be our last class together for this semester.
Please encourage your student to work on the paper over the weekend. Students may text me when they have their work ready for me to review again before they submit it for a final grade on Monday morning. I will be able to give more suggestions on Sunday before 5 pm and possibly a quick look after 8:30 pm.
I am very proud of each student and what they have accomplished this past school year and how they have grown since 5th grade. Please know that they may come to me at any time for help and/or encouragement.
Have a wonderful holiday and Merry Christmas!
