CLARK — Students in Christine Cemelli’s fourth grade class at Valley Road School in Clark partner read during Readers Workshop. With a partner, students reread different chapters from “Fourth Grade Rats” by Jerry Spinelli in order to find the figurative language and descriptions used. The students then discussed how they, as writers, can improve their writing during Writer’s Workshop. Cemelli states, “I was extremely impressed that the students were able transfer what they read and integrate it into their writing!” Pictured above are Gabby Scipioni and Marisa Venturella.
