We all know what time this is. It is summer! School has ended for most people and they are on vacation. In fact, you may be reading this on the plane going somewhere. The reason I am writing this post is that there will be new fourth graders next year in my school. And I like to show them all the extremely fun things and also the challenges we have faced in our class.
So the first thing that I like about fourth grade is the kayaking trip. It is a trip where you go to the Scarsdale pool and you ride kayaks. It is something that only fourth-graders can have! You go to the pool and kayak on all various categories of boats. You even capsize a boat! My favorite variety of the boats is the stand-up. This is a boat that requires you to stand up while you are paddling. It may sound a little bit hard, but don’t worry, it is actually quite easy when you get the hang of it.
One of the really challenging events in fourth grade it is the Revolutionary War books. These are informational books that had almost everything about the Revolutionary War. We had to write about 12 topics and one focus topic, along with a historical fiction story. It took about 3 months to complete it and after all of the hard work, we finally presented the project. It was hard but fun.
The state test is always an important part of the year because we do so much preparation for it, although we still don’t get the results till next September! Sorry, got a little off track. But seriously, this was tough. The fourth-grade state test is unlike the third-grade state test. And that is because we have an additional science state test! The test includes two different variations, the written one and the experimental one. We got to experiment with magnetic objects, the gravity of different items, and loads of other interesting stuff.
I save the best part of the fourth-grade for last. Drum roll, please… Wait we don’t have drums? Okay just use the dramatic flute. But the best part about fourth-grade is BLOGGING! There are so many different things you can write about and you can share them with the world. It has a lot of responsibility but nevertheless, it’s a wonderful experience.
In conclusion, I think that fourth-grade is exciting and fun. It is also just really challenging. Fifth grade would be a different challenge I am looking forward to. But I’ll still have awesome the memories of 2018. I hope you will enjoy blogging too.
