Language Arts: Since we last visited, the fourth graders completed Sarah, Plain and Tall.  In conjunction with this book, they also read an excerpt from Skylark in their anthology. Skylark is the next book in the Sarah MacLachlan series. The students did an assessment project on the book. This allowed them to choose what interested them most.

Theme six, Nature: Friend and Foe, came to a close in the anthology, and we will be moving on to theme one which is Journey. We will be journeying as far as Alaska to the inside of a giant peach.
