Fourth Grade is currently reading Milkweed, a novel set during WWII. The students have already amazed me with their understanding of so many key themes and concepts, such as identity, gratitude, and friendship. I look forward to seeing their finished projects next week!
In 4th grade, we are also finishing up the story of Jacob and Esau – the brothers will soon reunite, and it will be interesting to hear your studentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s predictions – will the old rivalry still stand, making reconciliation impossible? or can the brothers forgive each other and find it in their hearts to love again? Stay tuned to see what will happen!
