We've been busy in the OPS Library throughout the month of November.
Our K - 2nd grade students have been learning about authors, illustrators, and the elements they use to create a story - characters, setting, and plot.
In library club, our 2nd - 6th grade students have been building on that knowledge by creating wanted posters for their favorite villainous characters.
Meanwhile, our third grade students have been doing a deep dive into the Dewey Decimal System, while our fourth grade students have been learning how to evaluate a reference resource using our Lightbox Multimedia eBooks.
In the fifth grade, we are discussing plagiarism and have begun to learn how to properly credit a creator in our writing using in-text mentions and work cited pages.
Research is the focus in our sixth grade classes, as we begin to look at climate change and its affect on our daily lives. For the next several weeks, our sixth graders will be using the Big 6 Research Process to investigate questions they have developed about climate change using a variety of print, online, and multimedia reference resources of their choice.
