CLARK, NJ - Fourth-graders in Miss Adriann Cimino’s class at Frank K. Hehnly School started the school year by indulging in fairy tales.

Students embarked on a new journey to “Neverland” this week, as they began their unit on the literacy genre fairy tales. The unit began with a discussion about well-known fairy tales to interest the students. With a focus on the elements of a fairy tale, students have been practicing identifying those elements within well-known fairy tales, as well as those unexplored previously.

Cimino was quoted saying, “The students truly enjoy reading fairy tales. This genre allows the students to use their imagination and visualize the texts as they come to life. Fairy tales are a great and exciting way to start off the new school year."
