What a wonderful year the Fourth Graders have had! We finished up the year with reading Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick and compared the themes and events represented in the book to those in the movie. We all agreed on the fact that whether we choose the book or the movie, this was a wonderful story!
The Fourth Graders displayed their understanding of the themes in the novel in a final writing assignment. Students incorporated organization, topic sentences, detail and varied word choice, sentence structures, and conclusions in their longest and best piece of the year.
In social studies, students researched and wrote reports about a Saint Louis landmark and created a visual representation as well. Everyone enjoyed sharing their hard work and final results with their classmates.
We are all excited about enjoying our summer break and look forward to many new and wonderful experiences.
Happy summer, everyone!
