Accessing and Citing Images

5th graders, you've made great progress in your research!  Now that you ready to insert images into your informational writing pieces, remember that they need to be cited too.

April is National Poetry Month

I love poetry!  I love the way sounds come together to make words, the way words come together to sing, and the way poems can be written and enjoyed by everyone.
