Students from Wendy Herman’s fourth grade class at Smithtown Elementary School recently read the book “A Fish in a Tree.” The book’s main character feels out of place and doesn’t feel good enough in school because of her learning differences and dyslexia. The students visited the computer lab to create a 3D art project that illustrates what a fish in a tree might look like. After transferring their creations to Publisher, they wrote literature and self-connections about other characters in stories or themselves having the feeling of being a fish in a tree.
