You can always request a conference at any time of the year. I would be happy to meet with you before or after school. Call or send me an email to schedule.
Your child is doing a research project. Each child has chosen a topic and has completed a rough outline for each paragraph. We will spend Friday and Monday coming up to do the actual write up for the project. I am stressing topic sentences and clear supporting details. Ultimately, it will be a five paragraph paper. (Intro, three main body paragraphs and a conclusion. It has been interesting getting the students to narrow down their topics and help them find appropriate research. We have also had a discussion on internet safety. I have encouraged them to have an adult nearby to monitor their research and to help as needed.
Check in with your child and find out more about their chosen topic. Any help would be appreciated, but ultimately, the project needs to be your child's own work. Thanks!
