Zoo Postcards-update

When I did my zoo postcard activity today, I learned that I needed to stress something important in my directions. I needed to stress that they need to write their own sentences. I thought that I had made that very clear, but a group came up to me with the whole book copied on their paper. They couldn't understand why I didn't accept their sentences. I had to tread carfully as not to hurt their feelings.

  1. The plagarism is such s difficult concept for the students to understand. I had a third grader do the same thing this week. I guess we just have to keep trying!
