We held our first Writing Celebration this week! Students have worked hard throughout the fall to brainstorm, plan, draft, edit, revise, and publish one of their small moment stories to share with their guests. During Thursday’s celebration, teachers first shared information about the small moment writing process. Then children read stories to their individual guests, concluding the celebration with snacks and drinks provided by parent volunteers. (Thank you to all who helped to make our celebration special!) Finally, this week the students met authors and illustrators during the Book Fair. It did not go unnoted that all writers, whether they are in second grade or professionals, go through a similar process. It was an exciting week to be a second grade scholar at Brookside!
