I struggled for a long time over bibliographical citations for our first
through sixth graders, and finally came up with some forms for each grade
that I think will work.  They are meant to bring the students up
progressively from the first grade until, in sixth grade, they can do a
pretty sophisticated citation.  I based them on the MLA handbook,
Electronic Style (Li and Crane), Janice Walker, and Beyond the MLA
Handbook (Harnack and Kleppinger).

I included examples on my library's home page, which you can see at
http://styx.ios.com/~saroldi.  I'm still working on these, and will be
adding a reference to the sources I used. I'll also be adding a citiation
for materials retrieved from the commercial online services, such as
AOL.  I'll also be revising these over the year as I see how much the
children can handle.

If you have any comments or suggestions, I'd love to hear from you -- but
remember, this is for first through sixth graders, so some things may
look a little simplified!  In fact, for some sixth graders the electronic
bibliographical citations are very difficult to do without some guidance.
