4th & 6th Grade Happenings at Hickory Grove

4th Graders become Newspaper Reporters

Fourth grade students recently turned into newspaper reporters to let the world know of events that happened in the novel James & the Giant Peach.  The students had to create a newspaper front page to announce the deaths of Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker.  The students wrote a summary of the event using the information in the book.  They then added headlines, pictures, and newspaper “extras” to complete the page.  Students had the option to create their newspaper page digitally or paper and pencil.

Adopt-a-Pet Costume Contest

Fourth grade students who are part of the “Adopt-a-Pet” reading program recently participated in a Costume Contest and Parade to celebrate reading.  Students created costumes for their Adopt-a-Pets at home and brought them to school for a special time of reading.  The 4th grade students then paraded their pets through 3rd and 4th grade before an awards ceremony.  All 4th grade students voted for their favorite pet and awards were given for the top vote getters and teacher’s choice awards.  The students’ creativity was definitely seen and they’ve been reading!  During the month of October, students logged thousands of minutes of reading.

6th Graders learn about Veterans Day

In 6th grade Social Studies, students spent the week learning about Veterans Day. In preparation for the parade, students participated in a poster competition. Posters were created honoring veterans and each homeroom teacher selected a winner based on creativity. Posters were then displayed in the 6th grade hallway (pictures attached). Winners received a pizza party from Mrs. Bish. The winners were: Avery Thrush, Izzy Schrecengost, Addison Delp, Dicen Bish, Anna Efremenko and Kohl McKee. (picture attached). Students also created a banner of names of veterans they know which was also displayed in the 6th grade hallway (picture attached). The week finished off with a parade of veterans honoring our local heroes. The district and community together were able to honor around 70 local veterans.
