Book Writing

I have started publishing books that the children have written. It seems to have really sparked an interest in writing. I still have a few children that are unpublished. I will be encouraging them and maybe you can too at home. You might talk about potential writing topics at home. We will do some brainstorming in class also.

Right now most stories are fiction, but they can also write about things they have done or write an informational book about things they know. Most anything can be turned into an interesting story.

The children are very excited to bring their books home to share. Please return them after they have been read. Other children like to take them out of the book box to read also. We can use these books as a part of our 'Read to Self' time.
