PUE Perseverance

Fourth grade students began the new school year reading the book Stone Fox.  This book teaches students a lesson in perseverance through determination and strength.  The book is about a ten-year-old boy named Willy who lives with his elderly grandfather.  When Willy’s grandfather gets sick, Willy must take on the responsibilities of an adult to care for himself and his grandfather.  One of the biggest obstacles for Willy is money to provide for the farm, the animals, and his grandfather.  Willy and his dog, Searchlight, enter the National Dogsled Race to win the cash award.
Students learned about writing summaries, making predictions, and using text evidence to answer questions.  They will be watching the movie in order to compare and contrast the book and the movie.
