After sharing their memory items with the class last week, the children were eager to begin writing their books. We had many group discussions about how writers tell a story from beginning to end and how good authors are able to convey emotion in their writing. The children applied these practices in their own writing and also focused on attention to detail, such as adding spaces, and some even added punctuation. Their illustrations are full of expression and labels. We are so proud of our young authors, and we cannot wait to share our final pieces with you at our celebration next week. It is sure to be a great day!
