The fourth graders wrote narratives in the fall. They focused on the 6 traits of writing, writing both internal and external stories as well as filing their stories with voice! Students took life experiences and focused in on small moments, pulling in the reader using a variety of strategies.

Gymnastics by Angell N.

It was a sunny day. So sunny that every time I looked up I had to squint my eyes. I was in the middle of trying to get on a beam. I kept falling and it was so embarrassing.When I finally got on I started to do a leap but something happened… I slipped! I almost fell flat face on the mat but my hands caught me.

That's when my gloomy day began. When that humiliation was finally over it was time to the very hard but bouncy floor. Coach Kylie told us to told us to do a back handspring I was terrified because I knew that today was the day that she determined whether I would pass the intermediate level in gymnastics and I knew that what I was about to do would be fresh on her mind when she wrote the grades.

When I started I was so scared that I went in a back bend and fell right on the ground. Their was a big thud. Luckily most of the girls weren't that good at back hand spring so she didn't point me on it. It was finally time to get out of that humiliation trap. I felt so worried that I wouldn't pass. I was the last girl standing and I felt so disappointed.
