The assignment from Beth Sinanan’s English fourth grade class required the students to think up eight adjectives to describe themselves. These were used to decorate hats. Posing with their hats are, from left, LeighAnn Vincik, Seth Williamson, Cade Sinanan, Hannah Poirrier, and Cole Petite.

One thing St. Theresa School fourth grade students can say about Beth Sinanan’s English class assignments, it’s definitely not boring. Sinanan recently took on the subject of adjectives in an imaginative, zany assignment that got the students’ creative juices flowing. 

Students needed to study themselves and come up with eight adjectives to describe how they viewed themselves.  They also needed to decide what kind of hat best suited their personality to which to attach those words. The results were an explosion of color and design that made the classroom a milliner’s delight. 

The assignment was an inventive, inspired, and artistic success.
