4th grade has been busy creating realistic fiction stories. Each student started their writer’s process by creating believable characters. Since characters are the heart of every good story, that is where we began. To make characters believable the students took care to ensure each character had some good and bad character traits. Once the characters came to life with personalities, the next step was to decide what the character’s struggles and motivations would be. From these struggles and motivations students created a story arc that served as their story map. Finally, after all that planning, it was time to write! It has been a joy to watch these carefully crafted characters and plots come to life. The combination of: descriptive narration, clever dialogue, and relatable protagonists makes these stories real page turners!

Our Holiday Sing-A-Long is right around the corner! We are so excited to show our parents all the hard work we’ve done in preparing for this fun evening. Please have your student to their classroom at 5:30pm on Thursday, December 21st in festive Christmas attire (dressy is not required). Our show will begin promptly at 6:00pm and following the conclusion, we invite you to join us to walking or driving to our neighbors at TouchMark and blessing them with a few Christmas carols. We will sing 3 songs as a school community at the end of our show – and you’ll have the lyrics on your programs to take with you to TouchMark. The residents are very much looking forward to seeing us and we are excited to have this Community Partnership in giving to others. Thanks for all your support!
