NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - On Friday, May 15th fourth grade students from Miss McFadden’s East End School class took a field trip to North Plainfield Middle School. The students collaborated with their eighth grade English Honors buddies from Miss Colonel’s class.
The fourth graders are currently working on a biography unit and went to the middle school to peer edit their rough drafts. The children sat side by side on the grass with their buddy and edited their work. Prior to the trip, the fourth graders wrote a letter to their buddy introducing the person that they were researching. They were ecstatic when they received a letter back.
Dr. McLaughlin, Ms. Vella, Dr. Blecher, and Ms. Cruz also attended the event. The eighth graders will be invited to East End at the end of the month when the biography books are complete.
