Workshop Wednesday: Biographies

Happy Wednesday! Only 2 days until April Vacation!

http://ideasbyjivey.blogspot.com/2014/04/workshop-wednesday-writing-biographies.html
Today's topic is all about biographies.

My kids LOVE to read biographies-and I have a bin stacked full for them!


We also spend some time doing biographies!

I have them research an explorer (as part of our explorer unit-in collaboration with the librarian) and then they have to create a PowerPoint on their person!

I give them a list of criteria, for what they need to know as well as how to present it, they create a PowerPoint, and then they present it to their classmates!

They always do a great job...here's a peek!



Now, to get through the next 2 days...

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn
