Fourth Grade Superheros
To start the school year off, the 4th grade classes have been focusing on the theme of being a superhero. The purpose of this theme is to teach the concept that not all superheroes wear capes. They are everyday people making productive choices and taking positive action whether they are being watched or not.
The students created individualized superhero names, chose super powers, connected their identities to a theme song, and identified their personal superheroes. It was a great opportunity for the kids to get to know each other. Each student created a comic book cover that will be added to throughout the year.
We are also celebrating everyday superheroes by sending thank you notes to the first received thank you notes, phone calls, texts, and emails from these local first responders in return.
All in all, fourth grade is off to a great start and we look forward to the “super” fun, reading, writing and research to come.
