Helicopters and Fish

http://images.spaceref.com/news/2006/maple.seed.jpg




I have the most prolific group of writers this year.  Today there was research on seeds from trees that we found on a walk--you know, the fun helicopter seeds from maples.  Then there was the girl who spelled, "I do not like freetos [sic]" with the large moveable alphabet last week.  She copied it down on paper as a special note for dad.   The idea of real research papers is still new to most, but the children do like to find out information and write it down, well, copy it down.  When you're still struggling to make a "g," the concept of "in your own words" can be daunting.
