Novel Studies in 4th Grade

December 11, 2023

This week the 4th grade class will be concluding our novel studies that we have been implementing since early November.

Along with reading the novel, students have also been completing work pages that go along with the story. For every two chapters of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, there is a Dictionary Detective, Vocabulary Study, Understanding the Story, and Chapter Summary worksheet.

Ms. Stever’s class has been reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Mrs. Richardson’s class has been reading Henry Huggins. Ms. Melton’s class has been reading Kickoff!


Summary of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Life with his little brother, Fudge, makes Peter Hatcher feel like a fourth grade nothing. Whether Fudge is throwing a temper tantrum in a shoe store, smearing mashed potatoes on the walls at Hamburger Heaven, or trying to fly, he's never far from trouble. He's an almost three-year-old terror who gets away with everything, and Peter's had it up to here! When Fudge walks off with Dribble, Peter's pet turtle, it's the last straw. Peter has put up with Fudge for too long. Way too long! How can he get his parents to pay attention to him for a change?


Summary of Henry Huggins

Just as Henry Huggins is complaining that nothing exciting ever happens, a friendly dog sits down beside him and looks pleadingly at his ice-cream cone. From that moment on, the two are inseparable. But when Ribsy's original owner appears, trying to reclaim his dog, Henry's faced with the possibility of losing his new best friend. Has Klickitat Street seen the last of rambunctious Ribsy?



Summary of Kickoff!

But junior high is a lot bigger than elementary school. The competition for starting spots is stiff, and seniority rules. If Tiki and Ronde make it past tryouts and cuts, will they get the chance to play, or will they have to spend the season watching from the bench with the other seventh graders?
