A Magnificent Year

From all the books, to all the nooks, I  can’t believe it’s the end. From all the grades, to all the spades, I think I’ve made some friends. My teachers this year, makes me tear,when I have to leave. But this chance, made me glance, and my heart I have to heave. The Valentines party was really heart-y and the stone soup has me in a loop. The spelling bee filled me with glee and the groups I know, will never blow. But my favorite thing, is what I have to leave in spring. This grade will always be in my heart, from the the end and to the start.

Research and Online Research By: Jared

The key to good research is to find good sources, but not everything you read is true. The library is a good place to start your research.  You don’t have to read to get research you can use films, dvds, photos and cds. You can also research on the internet. Writers gather info for you by writing books. If you can’t find what you are looking for use quotation marks to find something specific [not pacific]. Definition of research: Research is when you find info on things you’re researching.
