Recently, Mrs. McConnell's 4th grade Language Arts/ Literacy class presented Biography Book Reports on the person of their choosing. Each student was responsible for conducting their own research on a person of interest. After gathering all of their information, the students were to write a 4 paragraph summary detailing the person’s childhood, profession, and personal achievements.  Mrs. McConnell’s fourth grade class also had to create a mobile including items that represented their person of interest. 

 In an effort to make their reports stand out, students tapped into their creative sides by accompanying their research with posters, videos, and even food! These students put forth tremendous effort in making their reports come alive. These reports have been displayed outside of Mrs. McConnell’s classroom for all our Durban Avenue friends to see!
