JFK Students Enthusiastic About Reading!

The fourth grade students at JFK Elementary were extremely excited to read the second novel by Roal Dahl, James and the Giant Peach, since they previously read the novel Matilda by the same author. Every day that would pass by, the students did not want to stop reading the novel because they were interested to find out what would happen next. They made inferences about the novel, continued reading, and were amazed to find out that their inferences were correct. To take it further, they started comparing and contrasting the two novels. They began  to make connections between these two wonderful stories where  they found similarites and differences about the characters and the stories themselves.

Los estudiantes de cuarto grado en JFK Elementary estaban muy emocionados de leer el segundo libro de Roal Dahl, James and the Giant Peach. Cada día que pasaba los estudiantes no querían dejar de leer el libro porque estaban interesados en que iba a suceder en la historia. Entonces hacían inferencias sobre que iba a suceder. Cuando continuaban leyendo, ellos se asombraban de que sus inferencias estaban correctas. También, compararon y contrastaron las dos historias escritas por Roal Dahl. Los estudiantes empezaron hacer conexiones entre estas dos magníficas historias donde encontraron similitudes y diferencias sobre los personajes y las historias.
