Writing Celebration!

The fourth graders have been writing up a storm! The writers in 4B just published their personal narratives and celebrated by sharing their writing with each other.

They shared their writing in small groups and asked each questions such as: Where did you get the inspiration for your story? What was the most challenge part of the story for you to write? What's your favorite part?

Some writers shared their piece with the entire class. 

Grade 4 performance of Wishes for the Future

Great job to the Grade 4 students on their Festival of Nations performance on Wishes for the Future, which they composed and choreographed as a part of the Expression of the Arts Unit!

Students are also challenging themselves to create 2D nets of 3D objects:

Ms. Mollie's class made it into the Top 50 Classes in Asia. Watch out World, here we come!
