September 13 is Roald Dahl Day! This special day commemorates the 50th anniversary of Dahl’s book, James and the Giant Peach. This is a book we traditionally study in Grade 4, because of its superior word choice.

In class, we are listening to The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, another of Dahl’s creative novels.
Encourage your child to check out some other novels by Roald Dahl – they are excellent examples of fiction novels for this grade level.
