Gillispie “Gem” of the Week – Grade 4 News Team

IMG_6158

Grade 4 students held their “News Team” reports!

Throughout the year on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, three students are chosen to research current events related to local news, sports, weather, and International news. In a news-style format, the reporters present their summarized articles to their peers and parents. This week the children presented news on a newly discovered species in China, the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament, and the possibility of a new twenty dollar bill with a woman on it. After the discussion, the reporters answered questions and took comments from their peers.

In addition to the News Team, the children in Grade 4 have opportunities to present social studies projects to their classmates. They also share facts at both elementary assemblies about hunger and poverty in the San Diego area. This relates to their service learning project at the food bank and their school-wide food drive in the fall.
