Fun Activities With the Seventh Grade Mentors

On the last day before break the fourth grade and seventh grade teamed up to work on our essential habits. They persevered through making friendship bracelets, and showed initiative, leadership and problem solving while making snowflakes and writing “I Am” poems.

We hope you had a happy and safe holiday!


Exhibition Part #1

The fourth grade teachers are so proud of our students. They sang beautifully and presented their expert facts to the community!


Great job on your first exhibition fourth graders! See everyone on Tuesday, December 3rd.


Shark Tank Presentations

During the public speaking enrichment, the fourth grade class pretended they were on the show Shark Tank. In groups they developed their own pitches for how they would improve the school, or what enrichment they want to see. The students learned great public speaking techniques for their first exhibition.

For enrichment on Wednesday and Thursday this week students presented their enrichment pitches to the panel of “sharks”. Everyone did great!

Thank you Dr. Cohen for teaching us these important skills and preparing us for our first exhibition!

Hammurabi’s Code Activity

On Thursday, the fourth grade students participated in an activity to learn and reflect on Hammurabi’s Code.  The students pretended they were living in “the cradle of civilization” and tried to picture what life was like back then. The students visited six stations that each had a different situation with the corresponding Hammurabi’s Code. The students contemplated if Hammurabi’s punishments were fair or cruel in a classroom discussion.


4th and 7th Grade Mentor/Mentee Introductions

On Friday the fourth grade students met with their seventh grade mentors for the second time. They filled out questionnaires about each other, and then everyone played a game where we lined up according to our birthdays! It was a great way to end a Friday! We are looking forward to doing more with our 7th grade mentors as the year goes on!
