Fourth Grade Rats

We finished reading Fourth Grade Rats by Jerry Spenelli.  We learned that you don't have to change to be who you are.  We learned that we are all different and unique and special.  We learned that being a "Rat" can come with its own set of problems.  We also talked about writing descriptions.  We hope you enjoy our self portraits hanging in the hall.
